COLAGE in Los Angeles!
April 12, 2014 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$50
Join COLAGE for a day of empowerment and community building. For over 20 years COLAGE has been supporting youth in LGBTQ families. We want to invite you to attend our exceptional programs including – youth workshops ages 6-18, adult COLAGEr gatherings, COLAGE panel discussion open to all, and parent networking.
For Youth! 9:30-4:30 We will talk about our relationships to our families and gather insight from our peers by sharing both the joys and challenges that come with growing up in LGBTQ families. Youth will be led in a creative workshop that provides a voice to their experience so they feel empowered about their unique story.
For the Public! 2 PM-Panel of Youth and Adults with LGBTQ Parents: COLAGE will host a panel of youth and adults with LGBTQ parents to talk about their experiences growing up around the nation. This is a unique opportunity for the public to hear authentic stories from youth and adult “children of,” ask questions of the panel and gain insight into the lives of people with LGBTQ parents.
For Parents! COLAGE loves to connect parents as well! While we are in L.A. we want to provide an opportunity for you to get to know each other and discuss what it means to be LGBTQ parents. We will meet at The Village and walk to have lunch together at The Corner at 12 PM. This event will accompany the COLAGE Panel Discussion in the afternoon.
For Adult COLAGErs! We see the need for adults to have access to our powerful programming and have a space to discuss our various experiences and identities connected to our parents gender and sexual identity. We welcome you to join us for free programming Saturday at 3 PM and Sunday at 12:30 PM.
