Description

Join C.A.R as we welcome our special guests for a fundraising lunch. Lunch will be provided and you get to meet the Co-Founder of the Trevor Project with special musical guest Ryan Amador.

James and Ryan will be visiting with youth from DYSC and local GSA's during thier visit in Little Rock. They are taking time off on Saturday for our fundrasing luncheon. They understand the importance of keeping safe spaces like CAR open. Please join us in supporting our local work but also to learn more about "The Trevor Project" and the national work that they are both doing.

"Since the election, I’ve been traveling around the country with my solo show (The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey) and finding opportunities to talk with students as the co-founder of The Trevor Project. We gather in school libraries, auditoriums, storage rooms, churches and community centers to talk about issues pertaining to the LGBTQ community, but what I’ really want to do is listen. I want to find out what these young people see with their 20/20 vision, and what they make of the world around them. And yes, they are the lucky ones, the kids with homes, at least one supportive parent and a GSA (Gay/Straight Alliance or Gender/Sexuality Alliance) in their high school. But after years of listening to kids in crisis, I’m eager to hear from young people who are receiving the support and encouragement to be exactly who they are. I want to find out if it has indeed gotten better for this generation of young LGBTQ young people." - Exract from The Huffington Post, Story on James Lecesne
