The LGBTQ Center OC’s Youth Program offers comprehensive services and resources that promote the healing, well-being, and empowerment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQQ) youth. We organize in-group activities and community events that strengthen youth and their sense of well-being and identity, as well as their involvement in their schools and communities. In addition, we have established ongoing relationships with 45 Gay-Straight Alliance clubs and their advisors, student leaders, and members to create safe and supportive schools for LGBTQQ students. We continue to increase our support for more Gay-Straight Alliances each year and provide resources for youth, students, families, teachers, administrators across Orange County.
Young Adult Groups
We understand many young people transition into a new stage of life after graduating high school, and with that comes a renewed sense of independence whether it is attending college, working, traveling, meeting new people, or exploring other ventures in life. We provide social and educational groups for LGBTQQ young adults ages 18-26 to meet other peers, engage in educational workshops, and participate in local community events.
Gender Flood is a social drop-in group for transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and gender-questioning young adults ages 18-26. This is a wonderful group to meet other transgender and gender non-conforming peers from throughout Orange County. Get involved, meet others, and participate in engaging weekly discussions, activities, and community events. Important Note: This is a closed space facilitated by and for transgender and gender non-conforming young adults. We kindly ask to respect the space for trans people only.
