LGYT was shocked and saddened to be informed Sept. 3rd of the arrest and charges filed against Brian Houg, our former Artistic Director. Mr. Houg resigned from his role with LGYT and has not had any involvement with the organization since June 5th when we first became aware of the allegations. We encourage anyone with information related to this case to contact the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office at (408) 808-4500. Alternatively, you can contact the Sheriff’s Office Investigative Services anonymous tip line at (408) 808-4431. First and foremost we are concerned about the wellbeing of our youth and their families and wish for healing for any who have been impacted by this news.
