Lunch Bunch

Every second Saturday of the month from 11am to 2pm, you can come hang out at the San Diego Pride office with other LGBTQ+ junior high- and high school-aged youth! Lunch and beverages are free thanks to San Diego Ambassadors of The Trevor Project, so no need to pack a lunch or bring money. Just come hang out, meet other queer kids, make friends, and have a great time!

Get connected to other youth-serving programs and help Pride plan other youth-centered events and this year’s Youth Zone at Pride!

Attention teachers, parents and youth! Help spread the word by downloading our “Lunch Bunch” flyer and passing it out to someone you know that might want to go.

Youth Art Show

San Diego Pride, Art of Pride, and the Trevor Project are partnering to create a platform to showcase young local LGBTQ artists. Art is a positive form of expression, and we welcome the opportunity to help our youth share their stories with family, friends, faculty and the community.

Youth Leadership Academy

The Youth Leadership Academy is a one-day workshop packed with outdoor activities, bonding exercises, and empowering educational discussions. This academy will include an introduction to LGBT history, youth advocacy, and network building. With these tools, our youth will learn new skills to engage their own communities and learn how to use their voices to inspire others to action. Apply below!
