A Bit About Us
By the Students, for the Students
Founded in April of 2017, Pride for the Youth is a student led organization with a strong dedication to showing love to those who need it. Our primary focus is providing safe environments, networking opportunities, and contact information of counselors, churches, support groups, etc., to Lincoln Nebraska's LGBTQ+ and ally youth. Our other focuses are on the importance of volunteer work and the support of positive progressive movements (such as feminism and environmentalism).

Founder and President
In my middle school years I became a born again Christian and ever since, God has convicted me to love those around me with the passion He wants all of us to hold in our hearts for each other. Being raised by Lesbian parents, I have always been aware of the struggles the LGBTQ+ community face, and through peers, I have learned that, identifying as LGBTQ+ and questioning the possibility, is often the hardest season of one's life. I believe God wants all of us to show support, especially to those in pain, and to love one another with all our hearts, that is why I founded and am driven to lead Pride for the Youth.
Oof! Why is there no body here?
