“I’m here to support my brother, who is gay, but you don’t need to be gay to volunteer,” said Langston. “It’s a very welcoming community.”
The twins began volunteering when they were 12. Now sophomores in high school, they regularly volunteer for special events as well as helping as volunteer canvassers with the Center’s groundbreaking Leadership LAB program.
“We do get a lot of comments like, ‘It’s good to see such young people volunteering,’” William added. “There’s almost no excuse for not doing it. There’s so many things to do at so many different times, during the week or on weekends. I think if I wasn’t volunteering, I’d be much more detached from the LGBT community.”
