A Safe Environment for LGBTQIA+ Middle & High Schoolers (Ages 13-18)

Whether you are exploring coming out or looking to connect with other LGBTQIA+ youth, the Coastal Bend PRIDE Center offers young individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities a place where they are loved, acknowledged, and accepted for who they are.

The Coastal Bend Pride Youth Group (formerly YNOT), is a program that strives to support, educate, and uplift lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual youth in Middle and High School (ages 13-18).  It offers a safe environment for youth to explore topics that are relevant and meaningful to their experiences, meet new people, engage in friendship, decrease LGBTQIA+ marginalization and health disparities, and raise positive public awareness of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The Pride Center annually hosts LGBTQIA+ Youth prom each June in the Coastal Bend which is open to LGBTQIA+ youths and allies ages 13-18.
