Please join families from around Santa Cruz County as they come together to hear from the queer youth group, STRANGE, as they share their voices with PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians & Gays). The first hour is dedicated to discussion groups followed by a brief break. The second hour will be dedicated to our March keynote speaker, STRANGE.
STRANGE is a youth driven program which strives to serve and empower the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth of Santa Cruz County and their straight and adult allies. STRANGE is the County’s longest running LGBTQ youth program and is currently housed at Youth Services of Santa Cruz Community Counseling Center.
STRANGE currently has two programs
STRANGE Support Group:
The STRANGE support group offers a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ youth to meet new people and talk about what’s important. The group is facilitated by a licensed therapist experienced in working with queer youth. The group meets every Monday from 4:00 to 5:30 pm at Inner Light Ministries in Aptos.
STRANGE Activists meet to collaborate and create original events for queer youth in Santa Cruz County. The group brings together youth who want to make a difference in their community, and together they create, plan, and implement their ideas. If you would like to see something happen for queer youth in your community then you should bring your ideas and together we will co-create it! The meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month at the Diversity Center from 4:00 to 5:30 pm.

Come hear from these amazing kids what they wish all parents and friends knew about them.
