Created in 1992 by individuals who were alarmed at the statistics documenting high rates of suicide among gay and lesbian teens. In cooperation with other local organizations such as Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG); Planned Parenthood; and YMCA Youth and Family Services, volunteers were recruited to conduct a support group for Sarasota area youth. They offer a variety of programs, including but not limited to:

• Scholarships ― If you are under 22 years old and continuing your education in the 2018-2019 school year, you may be eligible.
• Youth Ambassadors ― If you are 13-21 years old you might be eligible to participate in the public speaking and leadership program to connect with the community through youth panels and other public events.
