Works of Art
After a challenging year of attacks against the LGBTQ community, our youth have selected this year’s theme: Revolutionary: Pride Youth Art Show at San Diego Pride. "Honestly, I think this is a great event," says Jinx, "especially with everything that has been going on. San Diego Pride, Art of Pride and the Trevor Project have partnered up for this event. I have actually worked with the Trevor Project before and it's a great organization. I think this is a great way for our youth to express themselves and show off their art in a great manner. So if you know anyone who's an artist from junior high to high school age please let them know about this event--it's a great event for them to look forward to."
Get Your Teairra On!
