T-Parties are an affinity space for queer young women, trans, non-binary, and gender expansive youth ages 13-19. This program was created by Y-WE youth as they found safety and belonging by connecting in a space specifically for queer youth and adults. Each T-Party will be free to attend and have a unique theme, tea and food provided. Folks who are out, new, exploring, or curious are welcome!

We are currently accepting mid-year applications to join T-Parties. Sign up here!
