For 35 years LYRIC has been a center of education, activism, resources,  and community for LGBTQQ+ youth.

Last program year alone, LYRIC engaged nearly
2,000 Bay Area youth with affirming, expansive programming that ranged from after-school community groups to leadership development to health resources, and so much more.

LYRIC envisions a diverse society where LGBTQQ+ youth are embraced for who they are and encouraged to be who they want to be. By working towards social justice and supporting young leaders, their families and allies,
LYRIC is building a world that honors, respects and appreciates LGBTQQ+ youth and their contributions.

Frequently asked questions

“Those moments when I think I’m never going to meet anybody like me, or there isn’t anybody that I know from my walk of life who has made it, then I come to LYRIC and I do a group and somebody blows that idea out of the water.

It just makes me feel like I’m not alone.” -LYRIC Participant
