Drop In Activities
Every week, The Living Room opens it doors to all youth ages 14-20 to hang out, meet new friends, find support, and have fun! Each drop in has an activity that youth can do if they'd like. These activities are planned by the youth and include things like support groups, gayme nights, art/craft projects, open mic and karaoke nights, and movie watching.
Drop In happens every Wednesday from 4-8 PM at Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Willamette Falls (710 6th Street in Oregon City)
Events at The Living Room
Throughout the year, youth from The Living Room help plan events for GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County. The Living Room hosts an annual Youth Conference known as GSA Summit in the Winter, an Alternative Prom in the Spring, Pride Activities in the summer, and outdoor events throughout the summer and early fall.
Youth Leadership Opportunities
Youth Leaders do so much at The Living Room! They are the ones that plan weekly Drop In activities, events big and small, and are the first ones to be asked to participate in a panel when we're talking to the community. Being a youth leader is a lot of fun and looks really great on a resume or college application!
If you're interested in joining, just call, text, or email us, and we'll give you more information!
The Living Room knows that schools can be a rough place to be, especially if you identify as GLBTQQ! We work with schools to provide support in whatever way we can. Usually this means helping to start clubs that support GLBTQQ students (such as a Gay-Straight Alliance, Queer Student Alliance, or Diversity Club), provide support to existing clubs, help plan events, and provide training to club leaders. We also work in conjunction with GLSEN-Oregon to work with advisers, staff, and faculty to help schools become a safer and more supportive environment for students.
If you want the Living Room to visit your club, help you start a club, or would like us to help your school in any way, let us know! You can call, text, or email us!
