About Rainbow Alley

Rainbow Alley is a safe, brave space where LGBTQ youth (ages 10-17) and their allies find support and acceptance. We provide events and activities, counseling and support groups, health services and life skills—all in a warm and welcoming environment. Please check our calendar for upcoming events.

Rainbow Alley is a drug, alcohol, tobacco, and hate-free space.

Queer Santa stopped by Rainbow Alley!

Thank you so much to everyone who attended HoliGay this year! The afternoon was filled with holiday spirit, arts & crafts, good company, and special gifts from the one-and-only Queer Santa. It was heartwarming to see how appreciative each youth was of Queer Santa and her gifts for them, and the way they attentively watched and celebrated one another as they opened their gifts. We are so grateful to Queer Santa & her team of elves for making this special holiday event possible!
