Creating a LGBTQ safe house PrideSpace

Kat Wells, Jessica Weinschenk, and Laurin Blanchard, three amazing women, are starting up a non-profit LGBTQ safe house called PrideSpace where lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer people can come if they’ve been bullied, kicked out of their house, or need support. This is such an important and needed service, something so many of us could have used when we were teens, something that many teens and adults could use now. They’re in the paperwork planning stages now, and have the support of great organizations like Matthew’s Place and It Gets Better. But they can use all the support and help they can get to get this off the ground. If you have anything that would help to auction off for this cause, you can contact Kat Wells at (I will be donating a signed copy of SCARS and of HUNTED.) I’ll include more info as the project progresses or I hear more.

I hope you’ll watch the video below as Kat talks about what she’s doing.
