What Our Participants Are Saying

I just wanted to reach out to you and say that yesterday was my first time at PFY, and I loved it. It's amazing that there's finally a real, tangible safe space for people like me. I went with my girlfriend, and it was so much fun. I thought you were the nicest guy ever, and all the staff was amazing. I saw a lot of my friends there, and they were the happiest I had ever seen them. I'm just so happy that there's a place where I don't have to hide, and I'm not just "tolerated"; I'm more than accepted. This place makes me so proud of who I am. I'll definitely be coming more often. Love you guys!!!
