What this journal is about


The folks at Neighborhood Unitarian Univeralist Church in Pasadena are starting a new group for LGBTQQ youth in our area. The group starts Saturday, October 29 and will meet every Saturday in room 23 at Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church (301 N. Orange Grove Blvd Pasadena CA 91103.) The group runs from 3:00-5:00 and snacks will be provided.

This group is for any queer or questioning youth (13-18ish...we won't card you) from Pasadena and surrounding areas. Our vision is to offer a safe space for LGBTQQ youth to talk, support each other, and explore important issues in our lives. If you are interested in participating in this group and would like more information, please feel free to post to this community, email information@uuneighborhood.org, or call the office at (626) 449-3470 and say you'd like to speak to Kathleen about the Queer Youth Group.
