Local Calif. TV News Highlights LGBT Youth Group

For young people in Southern California’s Coachella Valley, the Sabores Youth Program is providing a safe space for LGBT youth by hosting weekly support groups and social events.

Yesterday, KESQ, Channel 3 featured Sabores in their evening news cast.  GLAAD applauds KESQ for telling this important story.  This story helps people of the Coachella Valley see the everyday stories of LGBT youth, and lets young LGBT youth know that there is a safe place for them to socialize with other people their own age. 

The Sabores Youth Program is one of Bienestar’s HIV-prevention programs geared to educate LGBT youth ages of 14 to 24.  Sabores focuses on fostering the health and well-being of LGBT youth.

 

GLAAD Southern Stories will elevate the experiences of LGBT people in six of the nation's southern states. The initiative amplifies stories of LGBT people thriving in the South, ongoing discrimination, as well as the everyday indignities endured by LGBT people who simply wish to live the lives they love, including stories of family, stories of faith, stories of sports, and stories of patriotism
