Odabu: A Space as Unique as it is Affirming

Odabu is a queer and trans-affirming space that offers barbering and a botanical product line. The space provides a one-of-a-kind experience to its patrons and sets up a space that lets people be vulnerable. It’s a space that allows queer people to exist outside of their safe-havens. | From: Germantown Info Hub (Read more.)

For five of the city’s most selective schools, preference will be given to students from zip codes that historically have sent few students to them. | From: Chalkbeat Philadelphia (Read more.)
