Queens of the Castro
The Queens of the Castro was founded as a nonprofit in 2010 by three drag queens in order to raise awareness about the differences between gender and sexuality in high schools and universities. We work closely with LGBTQ youth by organizing and implementing LGBT awareness assemblies in various high schools across the state of California with hopes to expand throughout the country. We also raise money to award scholarships to people ages 16-25 who identifies within the LGBTQ+ community and wishes to pursue any post- secondary opportunity of their choice.
Queens of the Castro needs volunteer support at fundraising events to help take tickets at the door, sell raffle tickets and jello-shots, and provide other support as needed. They also invite volunteer support for their scholarship review panel, as well as drag newbies to be in their shows!
