L G B T Q + Youth Summit
Make sure you stop by our Rose Dynasty Foundation booth and say hello!
The LGBTQ+ Youth Summit is an annual, free conference that provides information on Health, Education, and Empowerment so that LGBTQ+ youth walk away knowing that they belong and have an important voice in the community. Youth ages 12 to 26 are invited to attend and adult supporters/educators are encouraged to register also!
Metro Inclusive Health hosts this event in partnership GLSEN Tampa Bay to combat the discrimination LGBTQ+ young people still face in school, at home and within their community. Attendees are made aware of the support and resources available to them across the Tampa Bay area. Through community involvement, we inspire young leaders and work toward an inclusive future. Lunch sponsored by GLSEN TampaBay and light refreshments donated by Publix.
Registration and check-in open at 10 am and the opening remarks will begin at 10:30 am.
Featured Keynote Speakers:
Congressman Charlie Crist, US Representative
Dr. Kanika Tomalin, Deputy Mayor of St. Petersburg
Ashley T Brundage, Founder of Empowering Differences
