"Events like this are vital," says Jazzmun Crayton, health and policy coordinator at APAIT, after having her outfit styled. "It gives the youth we work with the opportunity to navigate in the most humane, safe and affirming way, where they know they’re valued and desired. They can let their hair down and be among other people like themselves and allow professionals to just love on them and celebrate their uniqueness and amazingness."
