June 11, 2019 – News

The Zach Gordon Youth Center is hosting Juneau’s inaugural Youth Pride Party on Thursday, June 20 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event is for middle and high school aged youth.

“At its core, Zach Gordon Youth Center is about being a safe place for all kids to come and feel welcomed and supported just as they are – seems like the perfect place to host a Pride party. While there are great youth-inclusive Pride events in Juneau, the event came about because teens had an interest in having something just for youth,” Zach Gordon Youth Center Manager Jorden Nigro said. The Zach Gordon Youth Center is part of the City and Borough of Juneau.

The June 20 event will feature a barbeque, bonfire, video games, tie dying, and door prizes. The Youth Pride Party is part of SEAGLA’s Juneau Pride 2019.

Zach Gordon Youth Center thanks event partners Juneau Teen Council, SEAGLA, AWARE, Juneau Youth Services, Juneau Suicide Prevention Coalition, and Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest.
