nationalstrategy.pngYou're invited to join us at the DC Center on Friday February 24th at 6:30 PM for a community conversation on the National Strategy for Black Gay Youth.

Our featured guests will be Frank Walker and Ezra Littleton from Youth Pride Services. Youth Pride Services (YPS) is currently the only, national organization that is 100% dedicated to African American LGBT youth. Find out more about YPS at:

Youth Pride Services, in partnership with several local and national organizations, have launched the first phase of a youth-led initiative to establish a National Strategy for Black Gay Youth in America.

Youth leaders in several states kicked off the first phase of this initiative on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The goal of this first phase is to mobilize 2,500 black gay youth across the country to take part in a national survey. The survey is designed to paint a national picture of what it is like to grow up black and gay in the United States. It will be used as a tool for partnering orgnaizations via a publication that will break down state-by-state data received from the strategy.

Please join us on Friday February 24th at 6:30 PM and participate in a community discussion on the National Strategy. The DC Center is located at 1318 U St, NW.
