Southwest / Youth: GLSEN Greater Cincinnati Youth Group

The GLSEN Greater Cincinnati Youth Group is a safe and welcoming space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth and their allies to gather.

Each week the group explores a topic of interest to middle and high school-aged youth with an emphasis on LGBTQ issues. The youth group also includes weekly social time and a quarterly social outing or activity.

The GLSEN Youth Group relies on a series of youth-generated ground rules to keep its space supportive and positive.

The group meets every Monday. It’s an informal setting, and snacks are provided. Enter from the back of the building by the parking lot. Mt Auburn Presbyterian Church is conveniently located by UC’s campus; adults dropping off youth at group can take advantage of many local cafes and shops while the group is in session.

Quarterly social outings (and infrequent other youth group meetings) are held off site.

Although meetings are held in a church, the GLSEN Youth Group has no religious affiliation.
