Testimonials
Joining The Q three years ago was one of the defining moments in my experience as a youth member of the LGBTQ community. Before joining, I was very confused and didn’t feel as though I had a support system. I thought that I would never meet people like myself or have a group of people who fully understood. The feeling of inclusion and safety I felt joining THE Q was incredible and nothing I’d ever experienced before. – Q Leader, 12th Grader

At The Q, it almost felt like everyone there could celebrate their own level of uniqueness on a wide spectrum, without having to change it for other people. – Q Member, 7th Grader

I joined because I am tired of hiding. After I came out – first to my family, then to friends at camp, then to the kids at my school – I felt that I had to always change the level of gay I was, depending on who I was with. Whether it was with certain relatives or the guys in my grade, I had to change to fit the setting. It was exactly the opposite with The Q. It felt like everyone there could celebrate their own level of uniqueness without having to change it for other people. Crazy, right? I came away from the first Q event I attended with one very important lesson I will forever remember: I am not alone.  – Q Leader, 7th Grader
