The Thanksgiving holiday continues for those apart of the LGBTQ community here in Erie.
Members of the Gender Sexuality Alliance gathered at the Erie Day School for a Thanksgiving meal. Kids had the opportunity to come together to a “safe space” and connect with one another while enjoying a meal. The goal of the event is to provide kids a place to hang out and support one another during the holidays.
“LGBTQ kids may not have a safe space to be, they may not know other kids that are like them, and we want to create opportunity for youth that are just like them. ” said Tyler Titus, a co-organizer of Friendsgiving.
More than 20 kids were expected to take part in the Thanksgiving dinner.
