The Youth Organizing Institute (in partnership with the Queer Youth Power Coalition) is hosting Queernival. Queernival is a semi-annual street festival for queer youth organizations and clubs. We have live music, prizes, and food trucks. In the past, we’ve also had a youth drag show and queer youth bands. GSAs, QSAs, and and other LGBTQIA school clubs have first priority for booths and those booths are free. Funds to host this event come primarily from larger organizations’ booth fees and local sponsors. Booths are sliding scale $1-100.
- Connect LGBTQIA youth to resources & networks
