January 14, 2018 PFLAG KC Meeting – JoCo Q-Space

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Our first meeting of 2018 features Cassandra Peters, founder of JoCo Q-Space, the only LGBTQ+ youth center on the Kansas side of the KC Metro.

JoCo Q-Space’s purpose is to empower LGBTQ youth to become out and proud members of our community by offering a safe, drug-free, and hate-free space where LGBTQ+ youth can be themselves without judgment. Q-Space started in March of 2017 after one of her children came out as transgender and she realized there was a need in Johnson County for youth resources.

Cassandra is also a board member for Equality Kansas Greater KC Chapter and has been working with area City Councils and Human Relations Commissions regularly to add sexual orientation and gender identity to their non-discrimination ordinances.

Cassandra has hosted numerous community events in support of the LGBTQ+ community including screenings of Gender Revolution, an LGBT panel discussion, an ally rally at Olathe Northwest, and most recently, a full day transgender education workshop.

Share this meeting information with others who can benefit from this valuable information for our youth!  See you Sunday at 3-5 at Village Presbyterian Church!
