Join us for the 25th Annual Queer Youth Leadership Awards as we honor LGBTQIA+ students and their allies throughout the county! We can’t wait to host you for a night of celebration and fun at the Watsonville High School quad. Our outdoor event will feature heat lamps, but you may want to bring a jacket for the cooler evening. Come early for the resource fair at 6pm, then enjoy a delicious catered buffet dinner by D’La Colmena Catering at 6:30pm.
This year we will recognize our brave LGBTQIA+ youth for their activism and authenticity while we reflect on the progress and milestones of our youth over the past 25 years. Our two-hour awards show starts at 7:30pm and includes live music, dance, and inspiring videos from our nominees. We look forward to you joining us in celebrating our LGBTQIA+ youth and allies in our first in-person event in two years.
