Groups for LGBTQIA+ Youth


The Athens LGBTQ Youth Group is a social & educational group for middle-school and high-school aged youth in the greater Athens area who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning.

Our monthly social groups provide a fun, safe environment where teens have the opportunity to relax and meet new people while embracing their individuality and allowing their true selves to shine.

Meetings are typically the 4th Thursday of each month!  Click here to go to our Youth Pride Facebook page!
