A local organization is gearing up virtual programs for gay and lesbian residents on the SouthCoast. The South Coast LGBTQ Network is a non-profit organization that started in 2014. It represents seven LGBTQ organizations with help from the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts.

The network's goal is to build a "comprehensive support network" for LGBTQ individuals and families. Network President Andy Pollock joins Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss the network's mission, what programs are coming up this summer and plans for a community center.

Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program that airs Sunday at 6 a.m. on 1420 WBSM. The program highlights individuals and organizations working to make Greater New Bedford a better place to live.
