In the early 1990's Butte County's Department of Drug & Alcohol, Youth Services received funding to study the needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transexual, Intersex, Queer, Questioning youth. An LGBTQ+ Youth Taskforce was created and the Stonewall Alliance Center was represented on its membership. Tools were developed for teaching school administrators, counselors and faculty about LGBTQ+ youth. Upon completion of the funded efforts the County asked the Stonewall Alliance to continue the work.
In 1994 we began providing the first safe space for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies in Butte County. In seventeen years we have served hundreds of teens and young adults. These young people have made a lasting contribution to our community and to many other communities. One teenager from 1994 later became the Center's executive director for 2004-2006.
