Stonewall Youth is an organization of youth, activists, and allies that empowers lesbian, gay , bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual (LGBTQQIA) youth to speak for themselves, educate their communities, and support each other. We envision a community in which all LGBTQQIA youth have a full spectrum of choices regarding their bodies, self-expression relationships, and legal rights. For more than 25 years, our crucial and supportive community space for queer and transgender youth ages 21 and under has helped thousands of youth to actualize skills for self-development, self-care, leadership, activism, and community building. As an organization, we are invested in youth-led anti-hierarchal organizing and aim for their organization to reflect the values of shared power that we wish to see in the world. Therefore, our staff operates as a consensus based collective trained in anti-oppression analysis, adultism and positive youth development. As staff, volunteers and a Board comprised of LGBTQQIA youth and adults, our life experiences allow us to serve queer youth in the most informed and whole way possible.
This organization is supported through the Funding Queerly Giving Circle, which is housed at Astraea.
