For 2019, WayOUT NYC is excited to be supporting JASMYN!

JASMYN (the Jacksonville Area Sexual Minority Youth Network) supports and empowers LGBTQ+ young people ages 13-23 in Northeast Florida by creating safe space, providing health and wholeness services, and offering youth development opportunities, while bringing people and resources together to promote equality and human rights. JASMYN’s vision is to make its community a place where LGBTQ+ youth are affirmed and valued and have the self-love, pride, and tools to thrive.

JASMYN is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and wayOUT NYC is proud to help it continue and expand its incredible work for Jacksonville-area LGBTQ+ youth.
