A magical surprise!
A magical surprise! Author and Harry Potter creator J.K Rowling tweeted one of the Youth Project's "Happy Hal-Con" posters to support LGBT students! We're excited there has been so much support and hometown pride for the YP, we thank all the folks who recognized it and sent it to us! We want to make it known we in no way profit from these posters, and all credit goes to J.K. Rowling for her wonderful universe. This was a way for us to celebrate the LGBT-positive spaces in the series that we love and find acceptance in - we're glad it has resonated with you!
YP would like thank our volunteer designer Abby Crosby for making these happen!
10th Annual Auction & Brunch
