As a GLBTQP person, you may sometimes feel excluded or singled out when trying to join your peers during different activities where your gender/sexuality will be put on the spot. School Dances are often one of those. OYA is ready to welcome you to our 3rd annual LGBTQ Homecoming dance! The theme is 1930’s Carnival/Circus. You can wear whatever you want to wear, bring whoever you want to bring, and even if it’s just for one night, you can be whoever you want to be. Come to our party, our homecoming. Come home.

She joined the organization in 1993 after serving as one of four national co-chairs on the 1993 March on Washington and taking part in the historic, first-ever meeting between LGBT leaders and a sitting US president (Clinton) in the White House. Nadine’s talk highlighted legal inequalities concerning same sex couples in the US.
