How We Support Youth

Bi-weekly gathering space for youth who identify as Queer & Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTBIPOC). 

A youth-led organizing effort to address obstacles facing queer youth in Alaska through activism and community building.

Get involved with a GSA, create a GSA in your community, and bring your GSA action to a monthly state-wide organizing space. 

Weekly hangout space for LGBTQ+ Youth and allies. Come make friends, share stories, and have fun. Thurs, 5:30-7:30pm.

Monthly social space for all youth who are transgender, gender fluid, non-binary, who are questioning their gender.

Monthly support space for parents, family, and guardians of LGBTQ youth. All ages are welcome in this multi-generational space.

A private Discord server for LGBTQ+ youth to gather virtually throughout Alaska and build friendships.

Annual leadership summit for LGBTQ+ teens held each summer for 4 nights at Camp K in Cooper Landing, Alaska. 

Identity coordinates so many events in a year, such as Pride Prom, Open-Mic Nights, GSA Day for Racial Justice, and more.

Positive environments are important to help all youth thrive.

It is important that LGBTQ+ youth have access to resources and support to deal with questions and challenges they face as they mature.

Identity celebrates and serves our young queer Alaskans through these programs:

Identity also coordinates with Gender and Sexuality Alliances (GSAs, including Diversity Clubs, Gender and Sexuality Clubs, etc.) throughout the school year to help strengthen clubs and provide helpful resources.

Identity provides training for youth leaders and/or faculty advisers to promote community between school districts.

If you know of a club that could use Identity’s assistance, please email Justin, Identity’s Youth Program Manager at YPManager@identityinc.org today!
