Jax Sugars currently works as the program coordinator for TEEN’MPower, a program focused on HIV prevention and community building for LGBTQ+ youth, ages 13-18, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jax is also a board member of the Albuquerque Chapter of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network), and a speaker and presenter for the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico. Jax’s goal is to promote a strong community of LGBTQ+ youth and allies who can gain support from their peers, where youth can educate and promote safer sex practices within their peer groups, and to provide a safe place for LGBTQ+ youth to gather, learn, and grow together as a community.
