LIKEME® Lighthouse is a major project of the LIKEME® Organization, a 501-c(3) charity founded in 2010 by Chely Wright, country music artist, to provide education, resources and support to LGBT individuals, and their families and friends. LIKEME® chose to open an LGBT Community Center in Kansas City to provide a safe and welcoming place for the area LGBT community to meet and work together to promote equality.
In 2016, a separate organization took over the KC location. Once we recover our trademarked domain from this organization, we will begin looking at other communities to build another LIKEME® Lighthouse.
LIKEME is about inclusion. LIKEME is about meeting and knowing people and choosing to seek out the ways in which we might be similar rather than they ways we might be different.
LIKEME is about support. LIKEME is about respect. LIKEME is about being an individual and celebrating other people’s individuality. LIKEME is about being who you are meant to be.
