Mission Statement:
"To promote awareness, to empower our community, to encourage diversity and understanding of the LGBT community"

About Us
We are a group of dedicated unpaid volunteers creating an organization in the High Desert  (Victor Valley area)  to inform our community of news and events that affect us.  Other than grassroots efforts in our area; the passage of Proposition 8 made many of us in the Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, and Transgendered communities, realize that we don't have a formal or simple way to communicate and inform our communities of events and rallies in the High Desert.
With a population base of over 400,000 in the Victor Valley area, Mountain areas and the Mountain foothill areas, we feel it's time to get better organized and provide a centralized site for information. 
At this time, we are looking to keep our community informed of activities in and around our area.  This web site is being created for our community.  We have created a "Links to Other Sites" that may be helpful to some of you.  Please select the Links to Other Sites on the Navigation sidebar, on the left,  to see the list of linked sites (A separate browser window will open to the linked site).
Please get the word out on this web site:  www.highdesertequality.org .  Remember, we are an organization (that is why we have the .org designation instead of the .com - which is for commercial sites).

Who's invited to High Desert Equality?
Everyone!  We are an  inclusive group.  We are a small but growing group.  We have gays, straights, lesbians, business owners, blue collar workers, managers, and unemployed people.Constructive criticisms, ideas and suggestions are always welcomed.   
When are the meetings held?
Generally, the meetings are held the 3rd Sunday of every month.  Please select the Calendar on the Navigation sidebar to see upcoming events. 
Where are the meetings held? 
Meetings are held at the Family Assistance Program (formally the High Desert Domestic Violence Program) located at 15075 7th Street in Victorville, CA 92395, One of Life's Perks, 18343 Outer Hwy. 18 South #1, Apple Valley, CA 92307 OR at the homes of our members.
