Congratulations to our Youth of the Month, Vlad (he/him/his)!!! Vlad has been an active member of Zebra Coalition over the past few months, serving as a positive role model for youth in the drop in center. Great job, Vlad!
For the first time in Orlando, organizations have come together to organize a week long series of programs and events in honor of Transgender Awareness Week! Wednesday's event will be a social media campaign called "Trans Voices". This is about having transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming voices heard in order to address the issues these communities are challenged with. You can share whatever you want in whatever format you want! Some things that could be included may be things such as feelings prior to transitioning, transitioning, people’s reactions, advice to others closeted or actively transitioning, advice on how people can be supportive, a poem or art piece etc.
For the past six months, PIZZA BRUNO has provided delicious monthly meals to youth at our drop in center.
We have many opportunities for businesses to get involved in our mission. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Drop by Pizza Bruno for some yummy food and thank them for giving back to their community! #pizzabruno#orlandofoodie
It's officially #SpiritDay!
Will you SHARE this to spread the word? We need everyone to know that we are taking a huge stand against bullying and supporting LGBTQ youth.

A group of lions are called a pride, But do you know the technical term for a group of zebra? The collective noun that describes a group of zebra is called a "dazzle". Aren't they dazzling? // photo by @jonathan_irish
