As You Are

Every day, LGBTQ youth face homelessness simply for being who they are. Nationally, up to 40% of runaway and homeless youth identify as LGBTQ. Locally, there are signs that the number is approaching 30% or more.

Please join us for a special event to start changing this in West Michigan. You’re invited to join us as you are… with the identity that makes you you, with the spirit that reflects your whole self, in the unique and important way that only you can.

Our special guest is Ryan Berg, author of No House to Call My Home. He’ll share the stories he has witnessed as a case worker in a group home for LGBTQ teenagers. Together, we’ll explore ways to advocate for LGBTQ youth and create spaces that celebrate and support them.

A cocktail hour and book signing will follow the program. Event ticket includes refreshments, program, and one cocktail. Additional proceeds benefit LGBTQ+ Youth Services at Arbor Circle.
