Compton's Table for Queer Youth
In 1966 at Compton's Cafeteria, gender-expansive people responded to the hostility they were subjected to, simply because they existed, with an act of resistance. In solidarity, today, Compton's Table serves as a place where queer youth and young adults can find community and resist marginalization. Our mission is to eliminate systemic inequity, create community through peer connection, and empower queer youth and young adults to be agents of change. Together with the individuals and communities we serve, Compton's Table works to create a thriving LGBTQIAA community.
This nonprofit was created to meet identified needs within the queer community of the Northwest region of Pennsylvania. The first phase of this organization will focus on developing queer youth support that elevates intersectional identities within community.
