Philly Youth Pride is an opportunity for high school GSAs and individual students to celebrate their LGBTQ identities while connecting with their peers from around the city. Our goal with Philly Youth Pride is to encourage connection, networking, and dialogue among LGBTQ youth and allies; to give young people a space to explore and address the issues that matter most to them; and most of all, a space where they can safely celebrate who they are and have fun. Snacks and beverages provided.
This year, join us on October 27th for Philly Youth Pride GSA FAIR and HOMECOMING
Date: October 27th, 2017
Where: William Way LGBTQ Community Resource Center
1315 Spruce Street
Time: 11am-3pm and 6pm-11pm
Students and schools are invited to attend the GSA Fair where they can relax, connect to resources, generate ideas for GSAs, or share stories with their peers. In order to support GSA programming, community LGBTQ organizations from all over the city will come out to offer their programming and services to students. Activities, games, crafts, and food will be provided.
In the evening, we celebrate Philly Youth Pride with Ally Homecoming. This is a party to celebrate the start of the school year with live performances, food, dancing, and a LGBTQ affirming environment. We also will crown a Homecoming Court for Best Drag. This event is free of charge for all students (student I.D. required/ RSVP recommended). Ally Safe School Program aims to develop safe spaces in the Gayberhood for youth to connect and have fun.
