Last week, BreakOUT! traveled to Oakland, CA to launch the Queer and Trans Youth Resiliency Campaign.
Queer and Trans Youth Resiliency is a project of the Revolutionizing A Dream (RAD) cohort, the young people's arm of the Strong Families movement, made up of organizations that work with young people ages 13 to 23 on issues of race, gender and sexuality. BreakOUT! is a proud member of Strong Families.
"We are tired of the way the media portrays queer and trans youth as victims. Yes, violence, homophobia and transphobia are realities for many of us, but we are so much more! We are creative, diverse and resilient. More than a stereotype, more than a statistic, we are resilient!"
