Youth Resources:

Young people are welcome at Bakersfield LGBTQ. 99% of our activities are open to those under 18. Our Men OUTSpoken includes young men; our Women's Group welcomes young women. The Family OUTings group includes young LGBT people and their families. Unless noted as 21+, young people may attend our social, educational, and advocacy events.

If you want to start a club for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning youth and their straight allies at your high school, it is legal as long as you follow all school rules. YOU CAN!
