Alchemy…a Salon announces a special art event supporting GALAGXY, a partnering program with GLO- the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of the Ozarks.
GALAGXY is open to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth ages 13-21. They meet at the GLO Center at 518 E Commercial Street every Tuesday from 3:00pm – 9:00pm for dinner, a meeting, and an activity or program. GALAGXY youth come from all over Springfield and the Ozarks from all different backgrounds and families. GALAGXY offers a safe and affirming space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) youth to be their authentic, genuine selves. GALAGXY youth organize fundraising events, monthly game nights and outings, and participate together in community events.
The reception and art exhibition will be held on Friday, October 4th from 7-9 PM at Alchemy, with live music, refreshments, and artwork by the youth membership of GALAGXY. Art sales will benefit the individual artists as well as GALAGXY. Cash donations to benefit the organization are also encouraged.
