Tell me more about FABULOUS!
FABULOUS (Fierce and Beautiful Underappreciated Leader Organizing to Uplift the Streets) is a program for transitional ages (18-24 years old), street involved, LGBTQQIA young people. FABULOUS! works with participants to identify links between feelings, thoughts and behaviors in order to better manage and reduce risky behaviors. FABULOUS! does this is by creating opportunities to practice and celebrate self-love and building community, while also opening up conversations about substance use, sex, and STIs. Like all of HIFY’s programs, FABULOUS! uses a harm reduction framework, which means that facilitators are committed to meeting people where they are at- we don’t expect anyone to be perfect!
