Unfortunately the Project Contrast team couldn't make it to Buffalo at this time, BUT we are still planning to have an outdoor social night (open to all LGBTQ+ youth) this Thursday 8/19 from 6-7:30pm on the grounds of:

St. Stephens-Bethlehem UCC
750 Wehrle Dr.
Cheektowaga, NY 14225

Sorry for the last minute change-- there will still be tons of food and low key fun!

Our goal is to have all in-person events outside, but if they cannot take place outside there is ample indoor space for social distancing. NOTE: Masks will be required of all participants if the group is moved indoors due to weather.

FOUR HOURS LEFT of #Give716!
The Trevor Project 2021 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health found that more than 80% of LGBTQ youth stated that COVID-19 made their living situation more stressful — and only 1 in 3 LGBTQ youth found their home to be LGBTQ-affirming. Help support our work to change these numbers at: https://give716.org/GIVE716/2021/giving-day/charities/glys-wny

GLYS provides a safe and positive environment for LGBTQ+ youth to learn more about themselves through peer interaction and educational experiences.
