December 31, 2012

It’s been another wonderful year for We Are the Youth! We met and profiled more amazing LGBT young people, had the chance to partner with the Brooklyn Museum and host a Teen Night in conjunction with the HIDE/SEEK exhibit, we were awarded BAC’s Local Arts Support Grant, had a great interview with WDFH, participated in the Fresh Fruit Festival, expanded to the Midwest, started our partnership with the Brooklyn Community Pride Center, and had the opportunity to show our work at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. Not bad.

A BIG, Special Thank You to all our friends, families, youth participants, our awesome intern Sarah, Hot Sundae, United Action for Youth, Shades of Yellow, The Brooklyn Community Pride Center, The Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, The Gay Club of MCAD, the Iowa Pride Network, WDFH, BAC, Clifford Chance, the QNYN, the Coalition for Queer Youth, guest bloggers, twitter/tumblr followers and all project supporters (whew).

Stay tuned for new work and more We Are the Youth excitement in 2013! And, if you’re feeling generous at the start of this new year, support We Are the Youth with a tax-deductible donation.

Here’s a quick look back at some 2012 highlights:
