LGBTQ+ Center

The KYC LGBTQ+ Center is a safe space for youth and allies to express themselves, explore their identities, and find community with other LGBTQ+ youth (11-17) and young adults (18-24). We are the first and only drop-in center dedicated to serving the needs of LGBTQ+ youth in the Northwest suburbs. Our staff strives to provide affirming services and resources for anyone who comes to the center.


We offer weekly events, like queer game and movie night, monthly free HIV testing, access to our game and book library, and other helpful information that will connect LGBTQ+ youth with support services.


We also provide trainings to schools, businesses, and other organizations about building capacity to work with LGBTQ+ youth. Contact for more information.


COVID-19 UPDATE: We have stopped all in-person events and will be hosting events virtually until further notice.


We want to know what support you need right now. Please take our 3 minute survey:
