These queer youth of color are on FYRE — and seek aid to have their voices heard



Atlanta-based SPARK is a reproductive justice organization with queer leadership. In keeping with its mission, the organization also sponsors an annual program for LGBTQ youth of color and allies ages 18-24 named FYRE — Fierce Youth Reclaiming and Empowering.

The annual program, held earlier this month, exposed youth from throughout the Southeast to the art of radio, to give them a voice to tell their own stories. But FYRE still needs funding to ensure this program continues and is hoping to raise some $3,200 in one week.
