Queer Youth Leadership Awards set for Saturday
Santa Cruz Sentinel ^ | 05/09/2013 | Terri Morgan

WATSONVILLE -- Dolores Huerta, an activist for social justice issues for more than 50 years, will provide a pre-recorded introduction for the 16th annual Queer Youth Leadership Awards that will be held Saturday at Pajaro Valley High School.

Organizers of the event, whose goal is to increase positive awareness of queer youth leadership, filmed Huerta's message of support earlier this week.

This year's program includes a community resource fair, a dinner, a dance and an awards ceremony for youth, allies and organizations that have made significant contributions to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning (LGBTIQ) youth in Santa Cruz County.

The event will also include the premiere of a video titled "It Gets Better." The public service announcement was filmed by Community TV of Santa Cruz County and features all five county supervisors voicing their support for the LGBTIQ youth in the community.

"The Board of Supervisors value lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth and we want to show our support for young people and let them know that the community supports them," said Supervisor John Leopold in a statement. "We want to tell LGBT youth that they are important members of our community and we want them to have great success in life."

Watsonville is an agricultural community on the California Central Coast some 80 miles south of San Francisco. This event is funded by taxpayers and the United Way. I can't avoid paying taxes but have boycotted the United Way for years. What's an "intersex" youth? What have these kids accomplished other than "coming out"? Sports, art, academics, music or just their sexuality? Who are these adult mentors interacting with these kids concerning how and with who they have sex? Really creepy.

you know, not so long ago these people would have gotten a serious ass-beating for even talking about gay sex and children in public...

“...awards ceremony for youth, allies and organizations that have made significant contributions to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning...”

The Golden Cucumber with Platinum Condom award, for all.

Sick, subhuman filth.

So sad for these young people to sacrifice the dignity of their personhood to be identified primarily as “queer youth.”
Hopefully they will discover in their future life that they are much, much more than their misdirected sexual urges.

The old Stalinist Huerta seems already to have “blessed” the event.

Another big step in the total disintegration of Americas moral strength and with it, our ability to understand right from wrong or what is good or bad. Definitions have become inverted in the march toward a secular humanist culture that will destroy us, just as it’s author, Satan, intended.

"We want to tell LGBT youth that they are important members of our community and we want them to have great success in life."

Why is that?

Homosexuals view themselves as special and entitled. Far from wanting privacy, they want power over all. It is part of the disorder.

my boys tell me that they would love to get a chance but with all the anti bully laws, the hate laws the kids now talk behind their backs so as not to lose their futures.

That was the purpose of the homosexual agenda, hate and anti bully laws.
Promote queers, feces sex, strap on sex, cross dressing, and then make it appear normal to kids growing up, shut anyone up if they spoke against it or beat the crap out of these mentally sick nutbags

Baltimore has banned mother an father on papers, forms or in the schools.

Well done to our side who never spoke up about this agenda, or marriage, you must be s proud to see America changed and the family is being perverted into a perverted sick twisted group, same goes for much of talk radio who still can’t defend the family or what a relationship is about

Wonder what the county’s liability will be if some child predator utilizes this event to make contact. On the whole I wish the county supervisors would focus on fixing the pot holes in the local roads.

There are more letters than that in some places. People so confused that they are asexual or omnisexual or who have always thought they were born a squirrel trapped in an alien pod body.
