Here's just a small sampling of the impact we've had on LGBTQ+ and allied youth in our community since March 2017.
We have improved the LGBTQ+ teen experience in Toledo. We have provided a safe space to gather and extended the safe space into the public sphere, including the bowling alley, Sky Zone, restaurants, and coffee shops. Our work has allowed teens to experience normal teen life while being surrounded by adults and peers who understand their journey and validate their identities. Our volunteers have served as mentors and many are a living testimony to the "it gets better" idea kids need to hold onto during high school. We have assisted trans teens in their journey of recognizing their authentic selves and helped navigate the process to change their name and gender marker, and eventually to obtain the necessary medical treatment to complete their transition.
