GSV 25th Anniversary Fund Update

The Mountain, Cabin 5

Dear Brother,

First of all, let me thank you for your generous contribution to our Twenty Fifth Anniversary Gift To The Mountain campaign. Today, we have raised over $26,000!!

Initially, the monies raised were to be used in the renovation of Ascenders Cabin. However, after much consultation with The Mountain, it was decided that a new structure would be more beneficial to both The Mountain and to GSV. The new structure will be built on the site of Cabin 5 (see accompanying images) and would:

  • be a 3 story building – approximately 28 ft. x 48 ft.,
  • contain 7 double guest rooms with jack-and-jill baths,
  • a kitchen,
  • a meeting/dining room with seating for 30,
  • restrooms
  • meeting/lounge loft, and
  • two observation/gathering decks.

At the moment, we do not know when construction will begin. We have, however, been assured that it will start shortly after a majority of the funds have been obtained.

Once again, thank you, thank you for your participation in this project!

The Visionary’s 25th Year Edition

Visionary, The Journal of Gay Spirit Visions 2014

Visionary, The Journal of Gay Spirit Visions 2014

“To understand how Gay Spirit Visions came to be, it is helpful to look at what came before, and especially what happened in gay consciousness between about 1970 and 1990.”  – Bob Strain (Palindrome)

Thus begins the prologue to this special 25th year edition of the Visionary, the Journal of Gay Spirit Visions. Tremendous gratitude is due Bob Strain, Gary Kaupman, and Tony James for the passion and vision each of them brought to this issue of Visionary, which would not have been published without their dedication. There are also many other voices in this issue, and gratitude is extended to each of the men who shared their words and wisdom.
