Queer Youth Field Day

The first annual Queer Youth Field Day is scheduled for Saturday, Oct 21, 2017. This event will include field day events, games, lunch and discussion surrounding being LGBTQ in Memphis. This event is for high school and college aged young adults. See the FAQ below for more information!

Please Note: Any high school aged group signing up together MUST have an advisor attend with the participants. For example, if your high school GSA wants to attend and everyone signs up together, an advisor must sign up with the group and be willing to stay the whole day. The benefits to signing up together are that you will be placed on a team together for various activities. If you have any questions about this, please contact sreyes@outmemphis.org
