Need Some Inspiration?

NYAC, the National Youth Advocacy Coalition awarded three young people with the Youth Courage Award.  They have overcome situations of oppression, harassment and family rejection to not only courageously live into their identities, but then reached out to help other LGBTQ youth.  With amazing achievements such as starting a non-profit for trans youth, becoming the youngest certified HIV Counselor and Tester in LA county, and becoming a peer educator and leader in reducing HIV amongst LGBTQ youth of color, these three remind us all that there is a lot to be done and that there are amazing young people out there willing to do it.
