Allies Need Allies: 2013 SMYAL Fall Brunch

With NBC’s Wendy Reiger (@nbcwendy) and Dana Beyer, MD (@danabeyermd) View on

Thanks, Dana Beyer, MD, for joining myself and physician, staff, executive colleagues from Kaiser Permanente this weekend to support SMYAL at its Fall Brunch. Kaiser Permanente is a titanium sponsor this year. Allies need allies – I’ll say more about that in an upcoming post.


SMYAL supports and empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. Through youth leadership, SMYAL creates opportunities for LGBTQ youth to build self-confidence, develop critical life skills, and engage their peers and community through service and advocacy. Committed to social change, SMYAL builds, sustains and advocates for programs, policies and services that LGBTQ youth need as they grow into adulthood.
