    We currently have youth programming for folks of all genders, as well as free HIV/STI Testing, Comprehensive Risk Counseling Services (CRCS) and a safe and identity-affirming drop-in space. Generation L is a community-level HIV prevention intervention for MSM and transgender (male to female) youth between the ages of 18-24. The program utilizes social events and public performances to convey a prevention message, and is designed to be fun and relevant for queer Latin@ youth. The group members design monthly safer sex campaigns, conducts monthly themed (and often costumed!) outreach and hosts social events throughout the year. Additionally, participants facilitate safer sex sessions called ‘Just the Tip’ each month in the youth space. We have opportunities for youth to obtain a small stipend for their participation.
