Wilderness Quests for Queer* Youth
Epic Journeys into Nature, Self and Community for LGBTQ2IA+, Gender Diverse, Queer & Trans Youth
Now in our third year, Rite of Passage Journeys continues to answer a community call to provide meaningful rites of passage for the Gender Diverse, Queer & Trans (LGBTQ2IA+) community in an inclusive, safe and healing way.
This isn’t “just another backpacking trip with other Queer & Trans kids”.
We have 2 trips this year! Facebook event: Queer Quest: A Coming of Age Journey Ages 12-14 https://www.facebook.com/events/1316307128578851/ & Queer Crossing: A Journey for Young Adults 15-18 https://www.facebook.com/events/617198825695068/
Information for both Queer Quests can be found here on the website: https://www.riteofpassagejourneys.org/queer-wilderness-quest
As an older adult genderqueer person I hold as a responsibility to younger queer & trans people (Guides & participants alike) to create opportunities for us to come together in a shared experience. This is in large part why I created http://www.queerodyssey.org.
This is one of those experiences I hope you will assist me in sharing and assuring as many young people as we can have opportunities to participate on a profound & beautiful adventure with their peers and Guides.
Feel free to message me directly for more info.
I’d love to talk more with you and support you or someone you know in navigating the application process.
We invite all interested applicants to pre-register today, and also encourage applications by QTBIPOC (queer, trans, black, Indigenous, and people of color).
NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS (NOTAFLOF) & gear loan is an option.
I appreciate anything within your power to amplify, forward, and share this experience!
Thank you for your listening,
Guide & Outreach Coordinator
If you are unable to register this year, please help us in assuring every young person has the opportunity to experience this program and there are no financial barriers. Give today.
