Celebrating South Carolina’s LGBTQ+ Youth

June 22, 2022

By Domenico Ruggerio

My name is Domenico Ruggerio, the ED of We Are Family, the oldest LGBTQ+ serving nonprofit in South Carolina! I’m excited to share with y’all the transformative power of We Are Family’s work— lifting voices and shifting culture for a more just and equitable society. We Are Family is where queer and trans youth thrive! 💜 As our youth said, “Keep doing what you’re doing.”

With the theme of “A Garden in Outer Space,” We Are Family was excited to blast off into outer space and return with The Charleston Queer Youth Prom in 2022. The Charleston Queer Prom is that one magical night of the year for middle and high school students to dance, celebrate, and build community free from anti-LGBTQI+ discrimination. Nearly 250 youth attended the event presented by We Are Family, South Carolina’s oldest LGBTQ+ youth serving nonprofit.
