Sexual & Gender Minority Youth Resource Center

Started by a coalition of queer and trans youth in 1998, the Portland-based organization SMYRC provides a safe and supportive space for sexual and gender minority youth with a calendar of enriching events including open mic, art and knit nights while also providing crucial services like gender-affirming clothing, hygiene supplies and counseling referrals.

We were privileged to visit the hardworking team at their downtown headquarters and learn more about this important work. And for Brooklyn Tweed founder Jared Flood and his husband (BT's Operations Manager) Luigi Boccia, this partnership with SMYRC strikes a personal chord and has them reflecting on their own journeys of self-discovery and searching for acceptance as their authentic selves.


Add something soft to your stash through Apart Together: Community and help Portland's queer, trans, and gender-nonconforming youth build the friendships and high self-esteem they need to pursue bright futures.
