Regular Weekly Events
If you are a LGBTQ+ youth age 21 or under, you’re welcome to join us any time during our regular weekly programs, unless specified:
Mondays 4-7pm: Drop-ins
1st & 3rd monday 18-24 year old night
2nd & 4th monday Queer and Trans People of Color Night
Wednesdays 3-5pm: Drop-ins

Fridays 4-8pm: Drop-ins
All activities take place at our HQ in downtown Olympia: 112 State Ave NE (near the corner of State Ave & Capitol Way and less than a block away from the Olympia Transit Center.)
At DROP-IN HOURS, sometimes we have organized activities, such as art projects, games, music & band practice, movies, field trips, and conversations or skill-building workshops on a wide range of topics such as zine-making, conflict resolution, dealing with stress, and issues of interest to LGBTQ+ youth. But most often, we just hang out with each other. Drop-In Hours are staffed by volunteers, interns, and staff members.
PEER SUPPORT GROUP is a great place to make friends, get support, and build a fabulous and loving community. This is an opportunity to share what’s going on in your life, both your successes and your struggles. There’s no pressure to share — you’re also welcome to just listen to experiences of other youth. Youth are able to get support and feedback from peers and facilitators. The support group schedule alternates weekly between youth-facilitated and adult-facilitated – youth-facilitated support group exclusively involves youth participants and youth staff facilitators, while adult-facilitated support group is facilitated by one or two adult volunteers/staff.
We also have a dazzling array of other regular and periodic events for youth (activism! dances! open mics! workshops! Queer Art for the Heart!) as well as events for the whole community. Keep up with it all on our website, Facebook and on Instagram.
Below you will find our Google Calendar,
PLEASE NOTE: When you attend our Peer Support Group or Drop-In Hours for the first time, we’d like you to do an intake (a short interview) with staff. We do this to make sure you’re able to get the support you want, and to introduce you to Stonewall’s programs. The intake is NOT a test to access our services.
We look forward to seeing you soon! And remember, you can always call or text if you have any other questions: 360-888-4273. You can also contact us through Facebook or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
