SOQUEL—The 21st annual Queer Youth Leadership Awards will be held at Soquel High School, 401 Old San Jose Road, this Saturday. Join the Queer Youth Task Force in celebrating and honoring queer youth and allies in Santa Cruz County.
The Queer Youth Leadership Awards recognizes local youth for their work in bringing positive changes to their community in a number of different ways—spanning across all disciplines and activities.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a Community Resource Fair. A catered buffet dinner will follow at 6 p.m., with the awards ceremony itself starting at 7 p.m. An inclusive Community Dance will cap off the night.
Tickets are $25--$95 on a sliding scale. (No one is turned away for lack of funds.) Student and senior tickets are available for $10. Tables can be reserved for sponsors. Volunteer opportunities are also available.
