New York City’s first LGBTQ+ owned and run housing complex opened in Queens on Friday, 30 years after the owner said she first conceived the idea. Ceyenne Doroshaw, a trans woman who is the founder and executive director of Gay and Lesbians Living in a Transgender Society, or GLITS, bought the complex, which has 11 apartments spanning three floors in the Queen’s Woodhaven neighborhood “Thirty years of a dream, of doing something like this,” Doroshaw said at an opening ceremony Friday. “But not just doing it, putting us in an area, in a location where we don’t have to run. Doroshaw said the building’s basement is being converted into an educational and learning center, as she considers education to be “the key and the base to everything you need in this world.”
