The 2014 Ruth Ellis Center annual event VOICES brings together the combined philosophies of positive youth development and social justice while bringing awareness to the epidemic of homelessness among LGBTQ youth in the United States. Understanding that youth are experts in their own life, VOICES provides a meaningful and educational platform for LGBTQ youth to use their voice, share their story, celebrate their individuality and be empowered to impact change. This year, youth will present an original composition incorporating music, dance, sign language and spoken word in collaboration with local artists and members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
