Identity Youth Center

Looking for somewhere to just be yourself?

Identity is a community youth center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Same Gender Loving, Transgender and Questioning youth in the Southern Tier of New York state. The Identity center serves as a safe place for LGBTQ teens ages 14-20 to find support, ask questions, hang out, and express themselves. We also provide resources, education and support to the families, friends and allies of LGBTQ teens, and to education, health care and social service providers wanting to better serve these youth.

Beyond the Rainbow Wall is now meeting at Identity!  BTRW is a weekly support/educational/recreational group for LGBTQ teens and their allies.  Meetings are held on Wednesdays from 4-5:30.  For more information, contact Identity, or visit us on the web at
