Who doesn’t love wine, chocolate and cheese? Ozone House will host the 2nd annual “Home Sweet Home” at Vinology on Feb. 18 to support LGBTQ youth. Tickets are $75 and available online. Proceeds go directly to the Kicked Out Fund which subsidizes the LGBTQ support group Pridezone; helps provide shelter to homeless youth and contributes to the 24/7 Crisis Line.
LGBTQ youth make up to 40 percent of all homeless youth, meaning thousands of LGBTQ teens are living on the streets. Despite the progress which has been made in recent years in the area of equality, there is much more to be done. Bullying, family rejection and homelessness are still real threats to the health and well-being of LGBTQ young people, including those in Washtenaw County.
