The second annual Out in the Woods Music Festival was a great success with Hunter Reynolds raising over $15,000 dollars through his Indiegogo campaign. This year there will be two programs at Easton Mountain focused on the young queer community. The first program is being run by Matt Breau, a former Queer Spirit Camper and an active volunteer over the past five years. 'What is Queer?' will be a workshop for young queer adults (18-29) who are interested in personal exploration. The goal of the workshop is to unpack and explore the ways young queer people express themselves and relate to others in order to live more intentionally in day to day life. It will be held the weekend of January 4th-6th.
The second program, 'Art in the Woods\', is being organized by Hunter Reynolds. It will consist of four weekly art education workshops in Manhattan for 20-30 LGBTQ at-risk youth starting the first week of July to culminate in a week-long camp at Easton in August 2013. Queer young adults will be invited to share their stories through art in a safe and supportive environment."
