Greetings! The NC Queer Youth Power Coalition is a youth-centered collaborative to strengthen the movement for queer liberation in the South. We organize trainings and events, and support organizing campaigns. Our first collaboration was Queernival: a Southern Celebration of Youth Liberation, which educated the community with carnival-style activities, a drag show, fashion cake walk, bands, poetry, and a balloon toss to destroy homophobia and racism. We are made up of three organizations: the Youth Organizing Institute, QORDS (Queer Oriented Rap-Rock Day School), and iNSIDEoUT/UPSIDEDOWN.
