Times Ledger: Generation Q celebrates grand opening of Forest Hills location
A Queens program for LGBTQ youth has moved to a new, more accessible location in Forest Hills.
Generation Q held a ribbon-cutting ceremony June 28 to celebrate the grand opening of its brand new center located at 107-20 71st Road.
The new Generation Q center, located just off Austin Street, is easier to reach than its previous location and is within close proximity to Queens Boulevard as well as the 71st St-Continental Ave. transportation hub.
For almost 20 years, Generation Q, a program of Queens Community House, has provided a safe, secure environment for the LGBTQ community’s youth as well as their allies and supporters.
Nearly 100 supporters, which included participants and partners, attended the event, along with City Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights)and Larry Menzie, who founded the program in 1999.
“I hope that each time a young person walks into this space they feel special and welcome,” Menzie said. “When they are here, it should be a moment they never forget.”
