We reflect on Pride as a remembrance of the strength and resilience of our queer ancestors who fought for the liberation of all LGBTQ+ people. We also reflect on Pride as our time to continue the work as the next generation of LGBTQ+ youth for a queer revolution…
“Some of my favorite programs at RYSE have been Youth Justice Initiative (YJI), counseling, Sister Circle, Let's Talk About Sex, Breaking the Frame: Anger Management (BFAM), and the different art programs.”
“Often adults think youth aren't educated or mature enough to make any sort of political action or to affect change. We are inexperienced, but capable. We just need some guidance, a light push in the right direction since it will most definitely be the first time we ever did something like this.“
