Queer Youth Assemble Is Helping Organize a Major Demonstration on March 31 — How to Get Involved

Story by Callie (Carlos) Cadorniga

All over the United States, rights for transgender folks and queer people are being attacked. In the week of March 20 alone, Them reports that Arkansas has passed a bill prohibiting trans and gender diverse students from using facilities consistent with their gender identity. In Georgia, gender-affirming healthcare has been cut off from trans folks under 18 and Idaho passed their own transphobic healthcare bill. This comes in the wake of several states banning drag shows from being put on.

2023 has thus far presented to itself to be one of the most dangerous for trans and LGBTQ+ rights in the country by far, but people are still working to fight back against the anti-trans and queerphobic laws being passed.

Queer Youth Assemble (QYA), a youth-led non-profit organization that supports queer youth under 25 in the United States, is organizing a demonstration that will take place on March 31 all across the country. Here's what you should know and how to can support the cause.

In response to ongoing transphobia and an alarming increase in anti-LGBTQ+ legislation in the United States, Queer Youth Assemble is gearing up to hold the March for Queer and Trans Youth Autonomy, which is set to be "one of the largest queer and trans youth marches in history" in order to advocate for "safety, autonomy, and joy." QYA has also teamed up with Florida-based LGBTQ+ group Project Caerus to spread the movement across the country.
