YOUnify Theatre Company

QUEER YOUTH THEATRE FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE

WHAT is YOUnify???

YOUnify, the Mahoning Valley's first LGBTQIA youth empowerment theatre, was established in 2012 by Kris Harrington and Daniel Nadon at the Oakland Center for the Arts, YOUnify's original home.


Through the arts, we focus on serving the Mahoning Valley's LGBTQIA and allied youth, between the ages of 12 & 22. 


We are a member organization of the national Pride Youth Theater Alliance, developed throught a Mukti Fund grant. The PYTA includes different theaters and organizations from across North America.
