Key Activities:

Last year (2023), QYS provided over two hundred gender-affirming items through the Trans Fashion Treasury, benefiting 37 individuals directly. This year, five youth have been assisted through the legal name change process, while many more have accessed updated documentation and necessary medical providers. Collaborating with our Director of Advocacy and Community Action, Eve, we've initiated poetry programs for youth held in juvenile detention facilities.

Achivements:

  • Donations: Currently seeking packaged undergarments in a variety of sizes for the Trans Fashion Treasury, especially plus sizes. Donations of formal clothes for upcoming queer proms are also appreciated.

  • Workshop Hosting: QYS aims to host workshops at the new site. If you possess skills and expertise that could benefit queer youth, please reach out to explore potential workshop opportunities. Your support is greatly valued!
