Be Young And Proud Group (BYP)

What we do

We provide a safe place for LGBTQIA+ youth and friends to meet, talk, and build community! Come and join us to learn more about yourself and the community.

Who it's for

BYP is for 14 to 24-year-olds who identify as LGBTQIA+.

How we assist you

If you identify as LGBTQIA+, BYP is a great place to meet people with identities and experiences similar to your own.

From building resilience to caring for your wellbeing, members in this group create meaningful connections with one another and our staff, in a welcoming environment.

When we are available

BYP is held on the first and third Tuesday of each month
(except for the end of December and the start of January).
