Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth

Friends of Youth is committed to supporting and celebrating youth and young adults of all gender identities and sexual orientations.

 Here are some upcoming dates that you should know about:

Seattle Pride Parade


June 30, 2019

The annual Seattle Pride Parade rolls through downtown Seattle at 11 a.m. at 4th Avenue and Union Street. Join the Friends of Youth Rainbow Committee as we support our LGBTQ+ youth.

Project EQTY

In 2014 King County and the Pride Foundation funded the NW Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse to launch Project EQTY. This project, which includes Friends of Youth and four other providers, seeks to identify local resources, strengthen how these resources interact and improve competency in supporting LGBTQ+ young people experiencing homelessness.

Project EQTY was a three year collaborative project that ended in the summer of 2016. It brought up very important issues and its findings have helped Friends of Youth become a better steward of the LGBTQ community.
