Jun Young is the founder of Beloved Arise, a Christian group that celebrates LGBTQ+ youth of faith.
Young this year launched Beloved Arise, a Christian group that celebrates and empowers LGBTQ youth of faith.
To mark Pride Month, the group is hosting a Queer Youth of Faith Day on Tuesday to celebrate LGBTQ youth from all faiths.
Now four months old, Young’s organization has about three dozen LGBTQ youth and allies from Hawaii to Mississippi regularly attend its weekly virtual gatherings.
Although Beloved Arise is a Christian group, Young said he someday hopes to expand it to become a multifaith organization.
