GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER
YOUTH SHOWCASE!!

Welcome to the Youth Alliance for Diversity Showcase!

Here is where we will put up some of the artwork, poetry, music, writing, and other creative expressions of YAD members.

We are quite proud of our youth and want to give them a place to display their talents.

Too often GLBT youth are told that they are worth nothing, that they have nothing to contribute to society. We hope that this collection helps give other GLBT youth inspiration and, above all, hope and good self-esteem. We also hope it helps others see GLBT folk in a more positive light - as human beings with feelings, passion, and many of the same goals and dreams that they have themselves.

So without further ado - Bring on the Talent!

Note: some of the youths names have been changed to protect their identity. The work is all original, however.


NICK
