National Queer Youth of Faith Day
Queer Youth of Faith Day (#QYFDay) is the first national multi-faith celebration of queer youth from all religious backgrounds. Launching on June 30th, the last day of Pride, #QYFDay has a simple message to youth: Take pride in all of who you are, including your gender identity, sexuality, ethnicity, and faith!
#QYFDay is sponsored by Beloved Arise, a Christian nonprofit dedicated to celebrating and empowering LGBTQIA+ youth and actively seeking other faith traditions and organizations to celebrate and promote #QYFDay. On June 30th, a #QYFDay party will be streamed as a virtual event through Beloved Arise’s Instagram, featuring youth speakers, essay winners of Beloved Arise’s essay contest, and musicians such as Trey Pearson, a GLAAD Award-nominated musician, and Brian Falduto who will release an official theme song and music video.
