Proceeds will benefit the GLBT Host Home Program. It was created in 1997 out of a grassroots effort to address GLBTQ youth homelessness. Originally hosted at YouthLink, it moved to Avenues for Homeless Youth in January 2007. The GLBT Host Home Program is an ‘outside-the-system’ community and volunteer-based response to youth homelessness. It offers a transformative and intimate approach to providing gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) youth who are experiencing homelessness with homes and support. They have intentionally kept this program small and non-institutional, with up to 10 youth participating at a time. All youth who participate in their program are queer-identified and the majority are POC. Program Contact: Ashley Morgan, Program Manager or Call: 612-968-1672.
On top of all of this we will be announcing the candidates for Emperor, Empress, and/or Emprex for Reign XVII!
We hope to see you that evening either enjoying watching the pageant or competing for one of the titles. We are a GLBTQ philanthropy organization built on the principles to raise money, have fun, and not take ourselves too seriously so please join us!
