If you haven’t yet heard of The Project of the Quad Cities, now is a good time to learn about them — and to meet Tyler Mitchell (above), the nonprofit’s marketing director and frequent public face.
A graduate of St. Ambrose University and the University of Iowa, Mitchell can often be seen at TPQC’s events and represent ing during media interviews. In addition to his work with The Project, Mitchell is an adjunct instructor at St. Ambrose Uni versity, and a board member for Gilda’s Club Quad Cities, a nonprofit that helps people living with cancer.
With Mitchell’s help, we’re partnering with TPQC to provide a new monthly page devoted to spreading word about The Project’s work. Why?
- TPQC officially provides prevention and treatment for AIDS, HIV and sexually transmitted diseases — but it also provides harm reduction services, help with quality of life challenges, and an ever-ex panding array of services for LGBTQ+ people.
- Like this publication, TPQC focuses on providing services that are harder to talk about in the “mainstream,” — for in stance, challenges related to sex, drug use, and gender or sexual identity.
- TPQC serves 40 counties along the Iowa and Illinois line.
This commonality, of bringing an LGBTQ+ and intersectional presence to less populated areas of Iowa and Illinois, is another big reason why we’re laser-focusing on TPQC. This debut page is merely a taste of what is to come. Please take in this information about The Project. To learn more, head to their website at tpqc.org, or
