Support LGBTQ+ Youth
"This is the first time my child felt at home with themselves."
-Parent of LGBTQ+ youth who attended PrideCon
We would like to invite the community to join UAY in our commitment to safer spaces and positive programming for LGBTQ+ youth. For the past 7 years, UAY has hosted a PrideCon celebration for LGBTQ+ youth. PrideCon is a day-long event for over 100 young people from all over Eastern Iowa who identify as LGBTQ+. It is a life-altering event where we create community, learn about identity, share our talents, and provide opportunities for young people to CREATE, GROW & SUCCEED. Your gift will ensure that PrideCon 2022 offers high quality workshops and speakers while remaining free and accessible to all youth. Thank you for celebrating young people with UAY and reminding them that they are not alone.
