Weekly Programs By & For LGBTQ+ Youth

Stonewall Youth is open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 3-7pm for drop-ins and other activities. We also have many special events!

Most of our activities are for youth ages 21 and under, but we have a few programs for youth up to age 25.

BTW, “LGBTQ+” is shorthand used to express the many gender identities and sexual orientations of the youth we serve, which includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, gender non-conforming, genderqueer, pansexual, and more! We also welcome youth who are questioning/exploring their gender identity and/or sexual orientation.

Our regular weekly events take place at the Stonewall Community Center at 112 State Ave NE, Olympia WA 98501

Event Calendar: Dances and camping and music…oh my!

Stonewall Community Center

Stonewall Youth was finally able to purchase our lovely and historic building in 2018.

Along with housing Stonewall Youth, we’re making the Stonewall Community Center (SCC) a multipurpose community center designed to fulfill needs expressed by many people and social justice organizations in our community, particularly those that are “by and for” people of color and/or LGBTQ+ folks. The needs expressed include affordable and accessible office space, event and performance space, and access to space/equipment needed by low-income emerging entrepreneurs.

You’re invited to make a general donation, or support one of our current campaigns.

Help Us Rise with an Elevator!

This is exploitive to use this fab quote and image here? Help me find another image

Stonewall Youth bought our building in 2018. We use the 1st floor, which is ADA accessible, for our activities. Now we’re ready to renovate the second floor so it will be accessible as well. It is unjust that so many places in our community aren’t accessible to all members of our community. YOU can help us in our quest to install an elevator and make other needed improvements!  More information →

Stonewall Youth provides many basic necessities to low-income LGBTQ+ youth, many of whom are homeless. This includes food, bus tickets, gas cards, gender-affirming items (such as cosmetics, wigs, and binders), school supplies, clothes, and more.
