One-In-Teen announces 2007 plans at upcoming open house

One-In-Teen Youth Services, Inc., a Nashville based non-profit serving gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth, will discuss its 2007 expansion plans at a community open house on Monday, Feb. 19, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  

The plans will include expanded hours and the addition of a “Drop-In” program for youth unable to attend the regular One-In-Teen Youth Group meetings. The open house will offer interested community members, parents, youth-serving professionals and potential volunteers an opportunity to see the larger youth center One-In-Teen opened in August 2005. The Center is located at 109 29th Avenue North, Suite  8 (one block off of West End Avenue, near Centennial Park and Vanderbilt University). Persons who might be interested in volunteering to assist GLBT youth are especially encouraged to attend the open house.

The “Drop-In” program (scheduled to begin June 1) will provide regular and predictable times that the center will be open for youth to stop in and hang-out, play games, talk, explore the library, or do their homework. Since the “Drop-In” times will be staffed by volunteers, the program will include telephone support for youth needing information or referrals, but unable to travel to the center. One-In-Teen will be seeking volunteers to assist the youth with this program. Volunteers will be required to participate in training prior to the June 1 start date.

In addition to discussing expansion plans, One-In-Teen will be introducing its new Board of Directors, which includes educator Al Roberson as board president, psychotherapist Frances Bledsoe as secretary and community activist DeWayne Fulton as treasurer. The new board will include two youth representatives as full voting members of the Board of Directors.

One-In-Teen requests that persons planning to attend the open house RSVP by email to or by phone to 615.321.7288.

Since 1989, One-In-Teen has been providing a safe space for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth, between the ages of 14 and 21. One-In-Teen is the oldest GLBT youth service agency in Tennessee. Basic services offered by One-In-Teen are free and every One-In-Teen event is alcohol and drug-free. One-In-Teen Youth Services, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Tennessee non-profit corporation and is able to provide these services because of the generosity of donors.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
