Queens Gazette: LGBTQ Youth Center Finds New Home In Heart Of Forest Hills
July 16, 2018
Forest Hills’ bustling Austin Street, which boasts countless restaurants and shops, is now home to one of the borough’s premier LGBTQ youth drop-in centers. On June 28, Generation Q, a program of Queens Community House (QCH), hosted a ribbon-cutting event at its new location, marking its official grand opening on 71st Road.
The program has provided a safe environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth and their allies for nearly twenty years, and offers a wide variety of educational and recreational opportunities as well as social and emotional support. Prior to the move, the center was tucked away in the bottom level of a public housing unit on 62nd Drive.
