Meet our new Coordinator of Cultural Activism!
Wow. We did it.
Support us as we embark on our youth-led and youth-run cultural arts center for queer youth!
THREEWINGS held our Open House for the new Queer Youth Space on August 3rd, 2012. The event provided an opportunity for us to showcase the space, to generate enthusiasm and continued community support, and for attendees to mingle and participate in the making of a mural. Live music was performed by our constituents in the venue next door to accommodate the large attendance. Our main program included speakers from the youth-led board of directors, adult allies who support the organization, our partners at the NW Network, and the deputy mayor of Seattle, who presented us with a proclamation of support from the office of the mayor.
This is about way more than same sex marriage or military service. It is about young people being educators and advocates for themselves!
“Since September 2009, I have dreamed of this day. When young queer people have access to employment. By the fierce urgency of now, marginalized queers can work side by side with the larger community and provide crisis intervention and vocational development. I am so humbled.”

Next, white people use more violence to continue…
