On behalf of Youth Pride Alliance, welcome to the 2019 Youth Pride Day. For more than 20 years, Youth Pride Day has been anevent where lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and questioning youth and their allies can learn about their community, enjoy the day and just be themselves. Our goal is to create a safe, supportive space for youth of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions or whether you are from Ward 2, Ward 8, PG Country or Northern Virginia.

The board would like to extend a special thank you to our partner Damien Ministries; sponsors such as D.C. Department of Health, Capital Pride, and Whitman Walker Health; Metro Weekly; and exhibitors and volunteers for 2019. Without your support, Youth Pride Day could not happen. Please take a look at our program guide and note the organizations and individuals who help make Youth Pride Day possible. The next time you visit one of these organizations, thank them for helping to make Youth Pride Day happen.

And, if you like what you see, we’d love to have you get more involved in Youth Pride Day and Youth Pride Alliance. We are always looking for new ideas and energy. As you celebrate this year, remember that there are many who are unable to come out to join us. It is Youth Pride Alliance’s goal to ensure that every youth — regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression — has the right to live, to love and to be loved.

Thank you and Happy Youth Pride Day 2019!
