Launched by Alexis Handwerker of The Hear Me ROAR! Project in March 2011, Coalition for Queer Youth was created for ALL LGBTQ youth supporters to have a space to come together, share ideas, organize and use creativity to educate and effect change.

Coalition for Queer Youth is a partnership between young people, service providers, activists and allies dedicated to using creative forms of education, advocacy and empowerment to increase community support for LGBTQ young people.

What makes Coalition for Queer Youth special and an opportunity to create effective change is that we are coming together, from our many perspectives in the movement, to shape thoughtful dialogue, educate and advocate for action and engage the community on a joint mission to ensure safe spaces for LGBTQ young people to grow.

In honor of Queer Youth Empowerment Month in October, Coalition for Queer Youth launched a creative exhibition of LGBT voices titled “Testimony,” and they are currently accepting submissions.
