Outright LA was thrilled to offer Queers +Allies (Q+A), an exciting, youth-driven,
and educational program where LGBTQQAI+ identifying students and straight allies
can work together to create a positive, fun space. Q+A created the opportunity
for an open and relaxed atmosphere where everyone shared in self-expression,
exploration, support, and advocacy for political and social change. We had
awesome games, art projects, guest speakers, field trips and more!
Q+A is open to youth ages 13-18 (including
recently graduated seniors), keep an eye out for more information
to come as we repeat this program next summer!
