Description

Lauren Jaquays LGBTQ Youth Alliance welcomes all LGBTQ youth and affirming allies from Ashe, Avery and Watauga counties ages 12 - 18 to come hangOUT in a relaxed, safe space where you can just #BeYou.

We always have FREE food, air hockey, Foosball, art supplies and a space to chill with your friends. Occasionally, there will be guest speakers live or via Skype (like Jacob Tobia)

The Lauren Jaquays LGBTQ Youth Alliance provides a forum for communication and dialogue and is committed to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and inquiry with respect to sexual orientation and gender identity for youth 12-18 within Ashe, Avery and Watauga counties.

The Lauren Jaquays LGBTQ Youth Alliance facilitates transgender, queer, gay, lesbian and bisexual visibility by promoting and enhancing awareness, understanding and acceptance regarding issues of sexual orientation and gender identity being faced by residents in Watauga, Ashe and Avery. Its focus is to provide a supportive community network and resource for LGBTQ youth 12-18 years of age, including out and open individuals, questioning or closeted individuals and youth being bullied at school, contemplating suicide or facing expulsion from their homes.

The Lauren Jaquays LGBTQ Youth Alliance serves as a visible and accessible safe space for youth identifying as LGBTQ or an ally. We welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and encourage involvement in helping to promote acceptance and equality for all LGBTQ citizens of the High Country.
