Community Connections

Queer Youth Space
Queer Youth Space is a producer of events, coalitions, working groups and strategy sessions within the queer youth community. We believe in youth-led/adult partnered structures and organizations. We believe the true success in eliminating oppression rests in galvanizing those experiencing oppression as the primary actors challenging and directly confronting systemic power. Successful youth development requires that youth operate as the sails of the ship, rather than strictly as the passengers. QYS pays queer youth for activism, and is also creating a new queer youth center on Capitol Hill as an organization THREE WINGS.

Bent Writing Institute
“Bent is a queer writing institute, but we’re more than just a school. We’re a community of poets, storytellers, teachers, and performers. Our learning model redefines the study of writing based on the radical notion that queer stories and voices must be heard. We write to have fun. We write to come out. We write to remember. Some of us make writing our career path, but more importantly, many of us use writing as a lifeline.”
