In a world where discrimination and prejudice against LGBTQ+ youth persist, Yes We Do Exist (YWDE) stands as a beacon of hope and support. As a non-profit organization, YWDE is dedicated to providing a safe and inclusive space for LGBTQ+ youth to share their stories, connect with their peers, and access essential resources.

YWDE's mission is threefold: to provide a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ+ youth, to empower them through storytelling, and to increase visibility and representation of LGBTQ+ youth in society. The organization achieves these goals through a variety of programs and initiatives, including:

  • Youth Programs: YWDE hosts regular youth groups and workshops where LGBTQ+ youth can connect with their peers, learn about their rights, and build a sense of community.
  • Storytelling Platform: YWDE provides a platform for LGBTQ+ youth to share their stories in a safe and supportive environment. These stories are published on the YWDE website, in anthologies, and through public speaking engagements.
  • Community Building: YWDE works to build a strong and supportive community for LGBTQ+ youth by connecting them with resources, mentors, and allies.

For LGBTQ+ youth, visibility and representation are essential for their well-being and development. Seeing themselves reflected in the media, in literature, and in their communities helps them to feel validated, understood, and connected.

However, LGBTQ+ youth are often underrepresented in these areas. According to a study by GLAAD, only 4.5% of regular characters on television are LGBTQ+ (2022). This lack of representation can have a negative impact on LGBTQ+ youth, who may feel invisible, isolated, and alone.

YWDE's programs and initiatives work to address this lack of visibility and representation. By providing a platform for LGBTQ+ youth to share their stories, YWDE helps to break down stereotypes and create a more inclusive and accepting society.

Storytelling is a powerful tool for empowerment and self-discovery. For LGBTQ+ youth, sharing their stories can be a therapeutic and empowering experience. It allows them to express themselves authentically, connect with others who have had similar experiences, and challenge the stigma and discrimination they may face.

YWDE provides a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ+ youth to share their stories. The organization's staff and volunteers are trained to listen attentively and respect the confidentiality of the youth they serve. YWDE also provides resources and support to help youth develop their storytelling skills, including writing workshops and opportunities to perform their stories at public events.

By empowering LGBTQ+ youth through storytelling, YWDE helps them to build confidence, increase their self-esteem, and advocate for themselves and their community.

Yes We Do Exist is a vital organization that is making a real difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ youth. Through its programs and initiatives, YWDE provides a safe and supportive space, empowers LGBTQ+ youth through storytelling, and increases visibility and representation of LGBTQ+ youth in society.

YWDE's work is essential for creating a more inclusive and accepting world for LGBTQ+ youth. By supporting YWDE, you can help to ensure that all LGBTQ+ youth have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
