QCH's LGBTQ+ Youth Program Launches Know Your Rights PSA for NYC Queer Youth

We are excited to announce the launch of Generation Q’s Know Your Rights PSA: The Q-niverse. The Q-niverse is a world created for NYC queer youth to learn about their rights and how they can advocate for themselves in and out of school. In this video we discuss local, state and federal laws protecting youth from discrimination, harassment and bullying based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.

 

 

Generation Q is an LGBTQ+ youth program of Queens Community House, one of the borough's largest social service organizations. Generation Q is a friendly, affirming environment with a wide variety of educational and recreational opportunities, as well as social and emotional support.

This PSA is a tool that Generation Q will be utilizing in their trainings to extend their reach to schools across Queens and the greater NYC area supplemented with a toolkit and technical support provided by Generation Q staff. Special thanks to The Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes for the funding to create this video, JOAN Studios/JOAN Creative in partnership with PANIC Studios and scriptwriter Alex Powers.
