When Sylvia Ximi was in middle school, she recalls looking around her hometown of Prescott, Arizona, for any sign there were other queer people around.

One low-slung building at a four-way stop caught her eye, with “LGBTQ” in its name. “Even as a 13-year-old, I remember thinking, ‘I have to go visit that place,’” Ximi, 29, told LGBTQ Nation.

The organization shuttered from a lack of resources before she had the chance.“That was the one place I could find in this town that that was queer and I could have turned to, and I never even got to go inside,” Ximi said.
