Queercore Programs & Events

Queer Youth Pride

In 2016, Gay City and Seattle PrideFest collaborated to produce a brand new Pride Weekend event: Queer Youth Pride. It was a great afternoon, featuring crafts, poetry, and music, all planned by queer youth! Learn more here.

Art Squad

The Queercore Art Squad meets monthly to explore different art disciplines and the application of art to engage our community. LGBTQ youth will be able to learn more about spoken word, poetry slam, illustration, design, photography, and other art mediums throughout the year. Each monthly Art Squad session will feature a professional LGBTQ artist who will provide a workshop on their specific medium.
