What We Do: Side by Side provides weekly support groups for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth ages 11-20 in Richmond as well as Charlottesville and Petersburg. We host special events in Central Virginia including an annual pool party and Alternative Prom. In our Richmond Youth Center, we also provide support for parents and families, are home to an extensive LGBTQ+ library, and provide a hangout space for youth. Side by Side also reaches out to our community providing training on both risk and protective factors to support LGBTQ+ youth.

Growth & Increased Need in Recent Years: In the last three years, Side by Side has seen tremendous growth in the number of youth we serve. Additionally, this year we have seen an increase in youth experiencing crisis. Particularly, we are seeing an increase in youth seeking support for suicidal ideation, including youth who have been stable in the past.

How You Can Help: Now more than ever, LGBTQ+ youth need a safe, affirming, and supportive place to be their full authentic self. Your donation ensures LGBTQ+ youth have the resources and support to build resiliency, especially now.
