Greater Cincinnati GLBTQ Youth Group - Meets Sundays!


From the UC LGBTQ Center:

The GLSEN Greater Cincinnati Youth Group is up and running!  And you are invited to join us every Sunday afternoon.  GLSEN Greater Cincinnati Youth Group ("GYG") provides a fun, safe, supportive and confidential environment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Questioning High School Youth and their Allies.  GYG will strive to build friendships and explore identity while promoting a peaceful community founded upon equality, acceptance and diversity. 

We meet every Sunday afternoon from 3-5pm at Mt. AuburnPresbyterian Church (no religious affiliation).  (We are not meeting Sunday, December 25th due to the holiday.)  
The address is 103 William Howard Taft Road, Cincinnati Ohio, 45219

GLSEN Greater Cincinnati Youth Group's next meeting is this Sunday, December 4 
from 3-5pm.  At this Sunday's meeting Shawn Jeffers, GLSEN Greater Cincinnati's Education Outreach Chair, will give a presentation about how to establish and support a gay-straight alliance ("GSA") at your school.  All high school students and your parents/guardians are invited -- We hope you can join us!
