photo 5QUEERNIVAL WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!

 500 youth, parents, and adult allies joined us throughout the day to celebrate Southern QueerYouth! There were youth drag performances and lots of bands. The program featured Mental Rolodex, Corporate Herpes, NuCorporate, and Hamslam Jamalam among others. We had over 10 booths representing various organizations and GSAs/QSAs, each with its own interactive activity ranging from stenciling to creating backward zines!
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2nd Annual Queernival a huge success. You know you’ve made it when there’s a bouncy castle on site!1507928_10105926900306150_8399779645389333979_n
