Creative Youth Welcome!

Attention CREATIVE YOUTH (&/or their Irreplaceable Guardians 😉

On Friday, July 18th from 5:30-8PM Ms. Brianna will be tabling in the Sun Center Courtyard, where local business owners are attempting to resurrect a Friday market of sorts. Because a number of her private clients have shown interest in creative work &/or crafting; Ms B would like to invite ANY & ALL YOUTH INTERESTED in selling their handmade crafts (e.g. postcards, drawings, jewelry, magnets, etc) to join her with their respective goods for sale; at this event 🙂 For more info, visit the FaceBook link here.

As many of you know, I am – first & foremost – a social worker; & value community action & group work as viable platforms for change. Last summer, in an effort to meet the needs of a newly “outed” client; I went in search of peer support groups only to find proof of the unmet need. Fortunately, I was introduced to the right folks at the right time; & have been working hard with our respective board members ever since to – first launch & later grow – a safe, supportive, educational space for queer youth; which we call the Gainesville Equality Youth (G.E.Y.) group. In an effort to spread awareness about this group and as a means of continuing to fund our small, not-for-profit group; the only thing that I will ask of participants is that they return 10% of their earnings to me – for purposes of this group’s sustainability.

I have extended the invitation to high school group participants & will have some G.E.Y. marketing materials out for distribution.

If you &/or your child is interested in participating on the 18th of July; please let me know. Otherwise – & as always – I appreciate your thoughtful consideration.

In Loving Kindness,
