The group is led by a New Tech High senior. It's recommended for teens in 9th-12th grade.
"I want to give teens from every walk of life a place to feel safe. We will bond not only over diverse books, but our diverse experiences as well. As a queer person, I want to let a variety of kids know that they are not alone, and that they always have a place to go to." -Grace Munro
