James Giessler, Executive Director North Shore Alliance of LGBTQ+ Youth

These are difficult days to be queer in America. Violence against LGBTQIA+ people is on the rise and legislatures across the country are enacting draconian measures that will severely impact members of the LGBTQ+ community. Queer young people are acutely aware of today’s political climate and often feel like they are living their lives in the crosshairs. It is no wonder that the rate of suicide continues to be inordinately high among queer youth.

With a mission to “honor, respect, educate, and empower LGBTQ+ youth,” the North Shore Alliance of LGBTQ+ Youth (aka NAGLY) seeks to protect, preserve, and enhance the lives of North Shore LGBTQ+ youth. NAGLY Executive Director, James Giessler, will share more about the work of NAGLY and what LGBTQ+ youth need in order to thrive in today’s climate.
