Youth Summit is a FREE day-long event that draws lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied youth from all over the Greater Cincinnati area and beyond. With speakers, workshops, and panels on topics from being out at school and work to the biology of sexuality to self-defense, as well as engaging social opportunities, plus lunch and dinner. 

While the Youth Summit is designed primarily for middle and high school youth, it also includes a family/elementary school track and an adult/educator track. Contact hours are available for both educators and social workers. (Email Dan Ley for more information.)

All Youth Summit attendees receive free admission to our Fall Dance Party following the Summit in the NKU Student Union Ballroom. (Want to perform in the evening's drag show? Email Zak Keiser for info.)
