Tonight is a special night! We're finally debuting a new program: Vogue Academy Junior! Resource Center's United Black Ellument (U-BE) program hosts Vogue Academy for its participants every Friday night, and we're collaborating with them to offer a monthly youth night, which will occur before the adult program starts (so there will still only be approved adults in attendance).

Don't know what vogueing or ballroom means in this context? Teen Vogue published an article with a brief history of ballroom culture (https://www.teenvogue.com/story/voguing-101) if you want to know a little more before showing up tonight.

So come tonight from 6–8 PM and learn about q***r ballroom culture! (We are not open for hangout time before or after that timeframe.) Please make sure youth are picked up no later than 8 PM.

Youth First will be closed next week for the holidays. We will miss y'all so much, but we hope everyone has a happy and safe week—however you celebrate (or don't)!

We know that the holidays can be a difficult time for many in our community, so remember that you know who you are, and you are valid. We love each and every one of you just as you are! We'll see you in the new year!
