At Longmeadow Pride, we understand that the young people in our community are not only the most vulnerable, but also the most in need of support, positive affirmation, and safe places to explore who they are and be themselves. It's one of the reasons why it is so important for us to make our community events welcoming of all ages.
As we continue to expand our offerings, we are looking to carve out a spot specifically to provide fun and encouraging social opportunities for teens.
Additionally, we are working on building relationships and influence with Longmeadow Public Schools to encourage better responsiveness and proactivity in regards to bullying or harassment, and to ensure school policies are inclusive.
If you are interested in Youth Programming, we are looking for more people to assist with programming and spearheading various opportunities. Please reach out for more information using our Contact tab at the top of the page.
The only queer youth organization in Springfield Massachusetts, Out Now provides a safe space for queer youth and allies to learn about themselves, develop leadership skills, explore the history of the LGBTQ movement, and much, much more.
