Statewide & Boston Based Programs for LGBTQ Youth
For over 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.
Contrary to our name, BAGLY’s work extends well beyond the borders of the City of Boston. Through the GLBT Youth Group Network of Massachusetts, we provide technical assistance and training, capacity building, best practices development and program evaluation to LGBTQ youth groups across the state. This vital work ensures that each year, nearly 7,000 LGBTQ youth and young adults from urban, suburban and rural communities in Massachusetts access comprehensive, culturally competent social support, leadership development and health promotion programs and referral services.
