Note: While the majority of Girls Rock Philly’s programs, including our summer camp, after school program and adult rock camp, focus on girls, women and trans* folks, GRP is very excited to be making intentional space within our organization for queer youth of all genders in Philadelphia with the safeSOUNDS workshop. This program emerges from ongoing conversations and self-reflection at GRP as we explore what it means to be an organization working towards gender liberation.
