Welcome to Oasis Youth Center!
Thank you for visiting Oasis Youth Center, located in Tacoma, WA.  Our mission is to transform the lives of queer youth by creating a safe place to learn, connect, and thrive.  Oasis envisions a world in which queer youth are valued in the community as strong, creative leaders. Oasis is a youth-adult partnership in which young people and adults come together for shared teaching, learning and action. Oasis is fiscally sponsored by the Pierce County AIDS Foundation.


As delightful as it is delicious, the Big Hat Brunch is an irreverent celebration of queer youth and a fundraising fête for Oasis Youth Center, Pierce County’s only drop-in support center dedicated to LGBTQ youth. Pick out your most cheerful summer apparel and join us for a memorable morning of fabulous food, fun, and festivities!

Your support is critical and will ensure that Oasis continues its life- changing programming. All funds raised during the Brunch will support Oasis operations and programming. Tickets are $50/ person through June 20. Tickets are $65/each starting June 21.

The Big Hat Brunch is a featured event of the Tacoma Pride Festival.
