WASS Takes 32 Guests To Saratoga Performing Arts Center And Dinner At El Mexicano
Whispering Angels of Saratoga Springs was fortunate enough to be able to treat 32 LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 people to a tasty dinner at El Mexicano Restaurant and a performance of the Philadephia Orchestra Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Saturday, August 10th.
Of these 32 guests there were lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and their straight allies attending. The ages ranged from 14 to 68 – the largest cluster were LGBTQ youth between 14 and 18. Most asked to not be photographed for fear that if their photos were seen they would be bullied at school. These LGBTQ youth live right here in The Capital Region and they want support and acceptance! This is why Whispering Angels of Saratoga Springs exists. WASS raises money and awareness for LGBTQ people who are at risk or homeless with the specific emphasis on LGBTQ youth.
Thank you Elizabeth Sobol and SPAC for donating the 32 tickets to see the movie UP along with The Philadephia Orchestra to The Pride Center and to GLSEN for bringing your guests to attend.
WASS And GLSEN Host A Private Screening Of Love, Simon And Dinner At Buddha Noodle
On March 25th, Whispering Angels of Saratoga Springs and GLSEN (formerly the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) -Capital Region Chapter partnered to host empowering and heartfelt event to enable 90+ LGBTQ youth to together view a free and private screening of Love, Simon at Bow Tie Cinemas with a fun and festive after-party at Buddha Noodle. It was such a privilege to witness these high school students react to a movie about coming out – the students were rooting, cheering, yelling, and crying. And, parents in the audience were just as participatory. It was an honor and a privilege for WASS to support this event and to partner with GLSEN.
