• A place for youth

    I’m writing to spread the news that there is a friendly setting in Montpelier where young people who identify as LGBTQQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning) can gather. On thesecond and fourth Friday evenings of the month, youth from the ages of13 through 22 can enjoy free pizza, soft drinks,conversation and camaraderie in a spacious room at the Unitarian Church. The gathering time runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and it’s facilitated by two adultvolunteers who have been trained by Outright Vermont, the state’s advocacy group for LGBTQQ youth. To be young and gay in Vermont can be difficult. “Friday Night Group” provides an important social outlet. Thanks to Outright Vermont for creating this opportunity, to the UnitarianChurch of Montpelier for donating the space, to Shaw’s for donating beverages, and to Al Portico and Positive Pie for donating pizza for the sessions held so far. Please help get the word out about FridayNight Group to young people who may be interested. Thank you.
