Lawrence Queer Youth Voice is a youth-led trans and queer organization in Lawrence, Kansas that provides a safe space and an outlet for youth activism. 

Lawrence Queer Youth Voice is very active in the community and wants to engage people of all ages in issues relevant to trans and queer youth. LQYV does this by creating a safe space for trans and queer youth, help strengthen existing resources, and collaborate with community organizations. 

We have been around since 2011 working to create safe space for trans and queer youth in Lawrence, KS and to support youth-led community organizing. While the group has changed and evolved over the last couple of years, we have collaborated with other Lawrence organizations on community events, presented on trans and queer youth issues, and organized the Lawrence Pride March for the past two years. We have also started the first Kansas statewide GSA Network.
