Watch the entire event: Queer Youth Speak Out 2023

Queer Youth Speak Out 2023 panel participants at the ened of the event.

On November, 2, three high school students shared their personal stories about the effects today’s social and political landscapes have on them directly.

The audience of 100+ participants, in-person and virtually at Beverly Hall at the Naples United Church of Christ, had the chance to ask them questions through a Q&A at the end of the event.

The resilience of today’s queer youth is nothing short of inspiring. These students are not merely navigating the educational landscape; they are striving to survive while also actively shaping a more inclusive future for those who come after them.

Their tales underscore the importance of understanding and empathy, especially in times of societal division.
