When Akash Munshi and other Pride St. Louis board members saw the forecast of below-zero temperatures last week, they started planning.

Within two hours of meeting, they decided to keep the organization’s LGBTQ resource building, Pride Center, open overnight for homeless and low-income people. They gathered volunteers, and several community members began collecting money to help pay for the Pride Center’s gas and electrical utilities.
