Hello, my name is Maddux Eckerling (he/him). I’m a senior at Ghidotti Early College High School in western Nevada County, California. As a queer young person, my senior project is focused on educating adults on what it's like to be an LGBTQ+ youth in our rural community and how they can support us. To do this, I’m launching a project called, “Strength in Pride.”

On March 23rd, at the Miner’s Foundry from 6:30-8:00 p.m, I will be hosting a panel of local LGBTQ+ students. The focus of our panel will first be to enlighten the community about our struggles as LGBTQ+ youth. Then, we will open up the conversation to answer the audience’s burning questions about our experiences and how they/you can best support us.
