Everyone needs someone who can relate and understand in a place where they can be themselves and test their ideas. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) support group is a safe space for individuals to explore thoughts and feelings about sex, gender, sexual identity, relationships, society, and what it means to be an LGBT person in the world today.
