LIKE SAND THROUGH THE HOUR GLASS, THESE ARE THE DOPE MOMENTS OF OUR LIVES. August 02 2017
For 35 years this drop-in center for LGBTQ youth has been doing great work, just two blocks from the Dance Underground! Lambert House is a Capitol Hill landmark; an essential part of our community, but IT IS SO MUCH MORE than that. They have over 20 on-going programs and resources, everything from counseling and support groups to job skills training, community meals, field trips, and youth-led activities. They provide case management and mentorship, art and dance classes. Youth at Lambert House even give back, volunteering in the community, the list goes on and on and on. Their mission is to empower LGBTQ youth through the development of leadership, social, and life skills. They literally build and suistain community for LGBTQ youth who may not get that at home or school, and in an increasingly unsafe environment for LGBTQ people across the country. Lambert House has been in this location for TWENTY SIX YEARS, and last year they found out that their home may be in danger. They are currently raising money to either move to another location, or renovate their existing one depending on what shakes out with the developer. Either way, these young people deserve better than this crap country they have inherited, and they sure as hell deserve better than getting priced out of the neighborhood. We are so proud to raise money for them this month and double down on our commitment to support LGTBQ youth in our community. The future is brown and queer and we fucking like it that way. Namaste.
