Outloud | Youth Leader
Welcome back everyone to a new year at Outloud! To start off our first meeting of the year we started with our introductions and our question of the night, which was what your New Year’s Resolution is. A lot of the youth had practical goals that I believe all of them can accomplish. We then moved on to a short discussion on whether the youth believe LGBTQ+ people have more difficulty with family during the holidays. Our group was on the smaller side this meeting so there wasn’t that many opinions on this topic.
We then moved on to a controversial trans video that Terry found on the internet on a doctor who doesn’t believe people can identify as trans. This brought a lot of conversation to the group and a lot the youth were disproving this doctor with their own experiences.
Our crazy game of the night was the human knot. The youth had a great time with this game. There was lots of laughter and they had multiple attempts to try to make it harder.
At the end of the night we did a quick checkout with everyone to catch up on what has been happening in their lives.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 16th from 7-9pm at The Collective. Hope to see you all there!
