LGBTQI youth camp

When you were age 12-17, the last place you probably wanted to go over the summer was to a camp, right?

Well, what if there had been a camp for queers and gender-benders? You could have left your small town for a week and gone into the woods with other rad youth and adults that you could relate to and do badass things like self-defense for queers, play instruments and deejay, do drag performance, stencil and screen-print and make comics, go to queer rock and hip hop shows, talk about gender identity, talk about consent and sexual health, archery, study queer superhero history, and more. Duh, of course you would have gone!

This camp has been created for youth in the South and is currently registering campers and taking volunteer applications.
Check it out and spread the word!

We are committed to promoting the creativity, confidence, leadership, and prosperity of southern queer and trans* youth (and will accept youth campers from other regions).

We aim to nurture intersectional spaces and claim music as a vehicle of queer empowerment.
