Leighann Wichman Safe Place
Jay Roy, owner of Cape & Cowl, founded the Leighann Wichman Safe Space shortly after opening the main comic shop in September of 2014. Leighann was a pillar of love and the ultimate approachable soul. She was passionate about a few great things: comics, video and board games, and most importantly, helping youth find their geek pride, gender expression, and voice. Leighann was taken from us much too early as one of our local heroes, but her legacy of love will live on through the countless people she helped. The only strict policy she adhered to, was that of openness and inclusion, and of centering youth. Around her, one could discover their full potential, and experience the value of having a safe space to be your most authentic self. This is what we believe here at Cape & Cowl, and the values we find important to carry with us through the Leighann Wichman Safe Place. Feel free to contact Jay, (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn about our programs, or stay tuned to our social media and events tab on facebook to get all the updated info!
