Performers include:
San Cha is your mistress, your slut. The one you say took a piece of
your other half. Many have stamped her as a "tramp" as have all the
others. Envious of her freedom, they’ve already fallen for the trap.

...but she doesn’t want you whole, she’s not asking for your soul.
San Cha only wants to let you in for a small glimpse in her black hole

Our Space
In partnership with LGBTQ youth, adults and allies, Our Space creates safe and affirming space where LGBTQ youth can socialize, build community, develop leadership skills and access culturally relevant mental health services. Our Space holds the experiences, strengths and needs of youth impacted by poverty, homelessness and the child welfare and juvenile justice systems at its core, and recognizes these youth as fierce and fabulous change-agents in our communities.

Our Space envisions a diverse society where LGBTQ youth are embraced for who they are and supported and celebrated as leaders in their communities. We use holistic approaches to support LGBTQ youth in building a foundation of self-reliance, self-esteem, and self-confidence to promote individual and community based sustainability. At its heart, Our Space envisions a world where LGBTQ youth are empowered to show fierce love for themselves and their communities.
