What is the Out Youth Year of Pride Challenge?
The Out Youth Year of Pride Challenge is a campaign created to help bring visibility to the work that Out Youth has done for the last 30 years.
When you participate in the challenge not only will you show you are a proud supporter of Out Youth but a supporter of LGBTQIA+ youth and young adults across Central Texas as well as the LGBTQIA+ community as a whole.
While wearing a white t-shirt, either you or someone else will pour color powder on you as a way to represent that you are a proud Out Youth and LGBTQIA+ supporter.
