About the Friends
The Friends of GLBT Youth, Inc. (“The Friends”) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating homophobia and transphobia in order to allow all young gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Our mission is to support the programs of the former Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth by leveraging, aggregating, and dispensing untapped resources in the community. Through our support of the annual Youth Pride Celebration, we hope to create a safe and supportive environment in the Massachusetts Commonwealth.
The Friends started the GLBT College Fair in order to allow GLBT students, their allies and anyone who supports an inclusive and welcoming learning environment to learn more about local and national colleges and universities.
The Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth is a youth-led, adult-supported social support organization committed to social justice, and creating, sustaining and advocating for programs, policies and services for the LGBTQ youth community. For thirty years, BAGLY’s weekly programming and annual social events have provided safe, supportive, non-exploitative and culturally competent spaces where LGBTQ youth can access social support and services, develop leadership and build community. Over 3,000 youth ages 22 and under who are LGBTQ or questioning their sexual/gender identity participate in BAGLY’s Boston based programming every year.
