The Future Perfect Project envisions a world where every young person feels safe, seen, and celebrated in their home and community. We believe that the self-expression of LGBTQIA+Youth is a declaration of a better future for us all.
To amplify queer young voices, we produce and facilitate creative workshops, media projects, and live performances of original work created by and about the current generation ofLGBTQIA+ youth.
What We Do
We amplify in three ways: We facilitate spaces and artistic opportunities (online and in-person) where queer youth create honest work. Then we utilize our resources to produce the work they create and broadcast it to a wider audience.
The Future Perfect Project is a national arts initiative designed to support LGBTQ+ youth in becoming the voice of tomorrow. Founded by Celeste Lecesne (co-founder of The Trevor Project) and Ryan Amador (singer/songwriter), FPP began in 2017 by traveling the country and offering true storytelling and songwriting workshops to teens in high schools and LGBTQIA+ Youth Centers. What they witnessed was a paradigm shift in the minds and hearts of young people - unlike previous generations, this current generation of queer youth is not interested in fitting into a world in danger of collapsing and disappearing altogether. They want something that’s never been. The kind of change they’re calling for requires us all to take a breathtaking leap into the who-knows-what of human consciousness. We believe that if the public was familiar with the young hearts of queer young people, they would love them, embrace them and recognize them as ambassadors of a more perfect future.
With this in mind, we offer online & in-person creative writing, music, and media production workshops that center queerness and empower young people to express their vision of a better future for us all.
