Welcome to Queer Youth Services and the Q Center


What is Queer Youth Services (QYS)?

Queer Youth Services (QYS) is dedicated to providing education, advocacy, and support, along with material resources, for queer youth, their families, and community providers. Our mission is to create safe spaces where queer youth can connect, access resources, and live authentically. QYS is soon to open a dedicated space in downtown Bellingham, aimed at offering direct support to queer and trans youth.

Trans Fashion Treasury

Provides gender-affirming items such as clothing, makeup, binders, wigs, etc., free of charge.



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.

Support This Work 

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!
