Supporting LGBTQ+ youth

What is BGLAD?

BGLAD is a weekly drop-in social support group for youth, established as a welcoming and affirming space for people exploring or seeking support for their identities.

BGLAD is co-facilitated by licensed mental health professionals who have experience working with LGBTQ+ youth. The facilitators help members feel welcome, maintain the rules of mutual respect and confidentiality and offer ideas and resources during group time.

If you’re looking to meet new people who also identify as LGBTQ+, want to learn more about local resources, or just generally want something structured to do with other teens, come check us out!

Join us online and in-person!

We provide group services through confidential in-person groups and HIPAA-compliant Zoom online meetings.
