It’s tough being under 21 and LGBTQ+ for many reasons but a big one is the fact that so much gay entertainment is adult specific…happening in 21+ venues and featuring content that may not be suitable for a 14 year old. And, this can be a big problem during LGBTQ+ Pride month when queer kids want to have as much fun as the over 21 crowd, but have fewer opportunities.
Happily, Seattle’s LGBTQ+ Center (former Gay City) and the Museum of Pop Culture (aka MoPop) have teamed up to produce a special Pride party for the 14 to 21 crowd…it’s CONSTELLATION: Youth Pride Mixer and it’s happening Friday, June 16th from 7pm to 10pm at MoPop. There’s a slew of activities including zine making, lessons in ballroom, dancing to DJs, drag and obviously a chance to check out the exhibits at the Museum.
