Oregon Queer Youth Summit
2016, 2017, 2018
For the past three years I have organized with queer & trans youth to make the Oregon Queer Youth Summit (OQYS) a reality. OQYS is a day-long summit held by and for queer & trans youth across the state of Oregon, culminating in Queer Prom. The day includes workshops & speakers, (all led by people 24 yrs and younger), a gender-free clothing swap, food, mental health care, a resource fair, art-making, and relationship-building. Decisions about the day - the theme, fundraising, planning, meals, workshops, speakers, etc - are made by youth organizers. Logos from 2017 & 2016 are pictured below - we're still working out the theme for 2018. Check out our website to stay up to date!
