About Epsilon Xi Gamma, Inc.
In September 2010, two old friends happened to reunite while at St. John’s Bread of Life kitchen feeding the homeless. During their service, they discussed what they felt was missing for professional lesbians like themselves, who wanted to give back and make a lasting impact on LGBT society. This conversation sparked an idea in both of them and they agreed to create something EXcellent and different. At their next meeting, October 27, 2010, the two put their ideas to paper and created Gamma’s first drawn shield, symbols, colors, ideals, and Epsilon Xi Gamma, Inc. was born. Epsilon Xi Gamma, Inc. is a legal 501c(10) non-profit organization in the United States.
