Night of Noise
Friday, April 12, 2019
Our Night of Noise event on April 12th brings the national Day of Silence to an end. Day of Silence is a symbolic, nationwide event, representing the silencing of LGTBQ+ youth caused by bullying and harassment. Students and youth pledge silence to represent dissent of homophobia, transphobia, and bullying in schools. Night of Noise ends Day of Silence on a proud and optimistic note, with a march and LGBTQ+ speakers and performers. Out Boulder County's Night of Noise event will start with a workshop for creating march signs and masks at 1 pm at the Pridehouse. We will also have food at the Pridehouse at 4 before the march, with options for a variety of dietary restrictions. At 5 pm, the students will march from the Pridehouse to Casey Middle School, where prominent members of the LGBTQ+ community will speak about their experiences. We will also have resource booths for various LGBTQ+ organizations that serve our community. Our event ends with drag performances at 7:30 and a debrief back at the Pridehouse at 8:15. This event is focused on youth ages 12-18, but all ages are welcome to attend. We look forward to a night of celebration of the experiences and diversity of the Boulder County LGBTQ community!
