Bad Glamour Shots for a Good Cause: A Fundraiser for Our Space
Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 9:00 PM - Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 1:00 AM (PDT)
Join Our Space for a night of bad glamour shots for a good cause. DJ's, dancing, performances, and bad glamour shot photo booths with props and professional photographers. All money raised will go to support critical support services to queer and trans youth impacted by homelessness and the foster care and juvenile justice systems.
We are trying to launch a youth leadership program for queer and trans youth. We need at least 50 monthly donors (at $10/month) to be able to fund this program and provide stipends to the fierce qt youth leaders. Swag bags will be given out to everyone who becomes a monthly donor.
When & Where
BAYC Our Space
In partnership with LGBTQ youth, adults and allies, Our Space creates safe and affirming space where LGBTQ youth can socialize, build community, develop leadership skills and access culturally relevant mental health services. Our Space holds the experiences, strengths and needs of youth impacted by poverty, homelessness and the child welfare and juvenile justice systems at its core, and recognizes these youth as fierce and fabulous change-agents in our communities.
Our Space envisions a diverse society where LGBTQ youth are embraced for who they are and supported and celebrated as leaders in their communities. We use holistic approaches to support LGBTQ youth in building a foundation of self-reliance, self-esteem, and self-confidence to promote individual and community based sustainability. At its heart, Our Space envisions a world where LGBTQ youth are empowered to show fierce love for themselves and their communities.
