We are alive and thriving, please join us for more OKCYU fun this week.
As a reminder…
Our mission is to provide a safe, inclusive and affirming environment to youth, ages fourteen to twenty, of all genders and sexual orientations from the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. OKCYU also seeks to provide education, outreach, fun and support; and to advocate for the civil rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (GLBTQ) people.

We meet every Thursday from 5:30- 7:00 at First Unitarian Church in OKC (off of 13th and Dewey). Some weeks we play games, sometimes we watch movies, and sometimes we just hang out.

We love to see new faces, if you are 14- 20 and want to join us, please do!

We’re talking alot about the upcoming prom (April 2). It’s going to be awesome!!! Come to our meeting or keep up with the website for more prom information.

And here’s another photo from last years prom to hold you over…

Follow us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER.

We’re becoming more active on these social networks and would love to follow you and have you follow us for important updates and interesting topics.

Thank you for your continuing support!

For those of you that don’t know what to do with yourselves since we’ve cancelled two weeks in a row…

I’m posting this awesome video that I saw on youtube.

And I want you to post a comment with your response to the video.

Oh how I love technology!

Following OKC ISD’s lead, we are canceling OKCYU again this Thursday February 10,2011.

Surely the weatherman wouldn’t keep us from meeting again next week. So be there or be square!!

Here’s another picture from Prom last year to hold you over.

We are in the process of putting together our second annual prom. Last year was a success! OKCYU is still so thankful for everyone that helped put it together. Everything from food, decorations, set up, clean up, entertainment, lights, etc… was taken care of by wonderful volunteers with castle sized hearts!

This years prom for youth ages 14- 20 will be on April 2, 2011 at First Unitarian Church in Oklahoma City.

If you want to contribute, volunteer, or donate funds for us to make it a success again this year hit the contact us link. We look forward to all of your support!

Since the OKC schools are closed tomorrow, we will not be meeting for OKCYU. You guys stay bundled up inside. OR Bundle up and go outside and have a fun snowball fight!

This was the view from my front door yesterday, and it hasn’t changed much today. So I certainly won’t be getting out anytime soon.

Have a great, restful, safe week!

Plus snow quotes are pretty great…

“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.”

“Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice. We are uncommonly and marvelously intricate in thought and action, our problems are most complex and, too often, silently borne.” Alice Childress

“You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile” Chuck Palahniuk.
