2014 Queer & Allied Youth Summit
Where: South Burlington High School
When: May 10th – 11th, 2014
Each May, Outright VT and a school QSA host the annual Queer & Allied Youth Summit. This statewide extravaganza includes a QSA Conference, Youth Pride March, SpeakOUT, Queer Prom & the SleepOut. The summit draws 150+ students and educators to a host school for a full day (and night!) of networking, skill building, strategizing and celebration of queer & allied youth in Vermont.
“Hosting the Queer and Allied Youth Summit this year is very important to me. Our team (the South Burlington GSA) is really looking forward to meeting everyone, having fun, and making a difference. I want to make an impact in the community. I want to be able to plan and host an event where we help out someone who is looking for an opportunity to really be themselves and not have to worry about what other’s are thinking. Working with Outright to host the Summit will make an impact because it raises awareness in my school and in the community that some kids don’t feel safe at normal prom.” – 2014, Youth Summit Intern
