Proud to Announce Queer Youth Facilitator!

We are greatly proud to announce our second youth facilitator for Queer Youth Space (3rd Tuesday of Every month at Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe) As a member of the community, Kit has taken the initiative to be an advocate for youth and support system.

1Kit was born and (mostly) raised in Bend, Oregon. After high school they moved to Italy, and eventually returned to Bend to pursue a degree in Paramedicine. Kit works as an EMT for a local fire department and is a full time Paramedic student at COCC. During their free time they act at local community theatres, climb tall things, and contemplate why coffee is so much better than tea. As an unapologetic advocate and activist, they’re very pleased to be part of the Queer Youth Space family.

Together with Liam Bennet, they plan to improve the community.
