I Matter Utah Favorite 



Jun 14 2022


Ogden, Utah

Realizing the lack of a safe community within the Northern Utah Area, Sammy, a highschooler from NUAMES in Davis County, started his project “I Matter” with a series of interviews in which he found this sentiment echoed. That’s why Sammy created “I Matter”, I Matter is an organization just for Northern Utah Teens. In conjunction with the Queering the Archives initiative, they realized there was a need for a safe space for teens to be able to tell their stories. They want you to be able to express yourself in any form your would like. We want to ensure all kids have a support system and a part of a community. LGBTQ+ kids are especially vulnerable. I Matter is for anyone who wants to tell their story and to be a part of community that is interested in support one another.

In addition to our exhibit, they plan on having monthly meet-ups, work in conjunction with Ogden Pride and the Utah Pride Center to reach all the kids in Utah who need them. They strive for all their functions to bring together some fun, some art, and some community!
