Writer / Blogger

We're interested in articles pertaining to the LGBT community. Topics which would be of interest are politics, film/book & entertainment reviews, opinion pieces, nightclub & performance articles & reviews, local event profiles, resource links, etc. We are also open to starting a new monthly article featuring profiles of local businesses. There are many hidden jewels in the valley which don't receive the attention they deserve. We're also interested in other topics not listed above, such as personal writings, reflections, blogs, etc. Throughout the year there are also regular, local events which we can assign interested writers to visit and cover. These range from Pride events to political actions, charity events, etc. We credit the writer's name to their article and lists contributors under "About Us". Articles posted on LGBT Fresno are also often picked up and printed in various other local, community website and print publications, such as News Link. All articles are written by you, work is submitted from your computer to our website (or by email if you prefer), and is available for you to edit after posting via a username and password.

Hospice Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers with a desire to give the precious gift of companionship and emotional support to hospice patients and their families. We are looking for volunteers with a desire to give the precious gift of companionship and emotional support to hospice patients and their families. Hospice volunteers provide companionship and a supportive presence to patients and their families. Volunteers can make visits in patients' homes and/or nursing facilities. Often, volunteers will read to patients, play music for patients, exchange stories with patients, or share a special skill or talent with patients. Our volunteers would not provide any medical care, but simply be available with an open mind and an open heart for someone ending their journey. You will be provided extensive training and support in your service to others.
