SIGLFF Sacramento International LGBTQ Film Festival Coat Drive Brings a Little Warmth to Our Young LGBTQ Siblings

As the days get cooler and October is upon us, it is that time again when we all come together for a round of thought provoking and Genuine LGBTQ Films as SIGLFF presents the Sacramento International LGBTQ Film Festival.

While we gather at the Crest Theater and settle down with a soda and popcorn, remember those in need with the 2nd annual Starbucks Pride Alliance coat drive for LGBTQ Homeless Youth.  SIGLIFF is proud to announce that this year's beneficiary will be Wind Youth Services, serving homeless teens in the greater Sacramento area.


Once again, for the 2nd year, the Starbucks Sacramento Pride Alliance joins us during the film festival. The Starbucks Pride Alliance is a company operated partner network for LGBTQ partners and allies working to affect positive change within the communities they serve. The Pride Alliance strives to cultivate an equitable, dynamic, and supportive environment for LGBTQ partners, allies and customers.

As youth homelessness grows in our community, so does the need to address the issue proactively The Wind Youth Center needs your help to make positive changes in the lives of the youth they serve. Wind’s homeless Street Outreach Program, the only one in Sacramento, is designed to reach homeless youth where they are, build trusting relationships, and encourage them to access other resources, with an overarching goal of moving them from homelessness to a stable living situation.

Wind’s Street Outreach Program, offers homeless youth:
• Shelter

• Sack lunches

• Transportation

• Personal hygiene packs

• First aid supplies

• Referrals & connections to other resources

• HIV and STD testing and counseling

This year during the film festival, we are asking SIGLFF patrons to bring in coats, scarves and gloves to help our young LGBT siblings during the winter months help keep them warm. You can also bring coats to Outword's Happy Hour at Badlands on Friday, October 13th.

On behalf of the SIGLFF board and the organizations I would like to thank you for your generosity.
