    The LOFT LBGTQ+ Campus in White Plains, NY

    (IP): TransParentcy

    WJCS Center Lane is where LGBTQIA+ youth create community, connect with culture, and contribute to the world! TransParentcy is a support group for Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, and Non-Binary (TGNCNB) youth ages 13-21 and their parents/guardians. TGNCNB and gender-expansive youth meet in one room while parents/caregivers meet next door so everyone has an opportunity to discuss topics of concern with peers. TransParentcy groups are often smaller, focus on a more specific audience, and can be short-term.

    Center Lane provides affirming supportive, educational, and recreational programming for LGBTQIA+ youth. Facilitated by supportive adult experts, group discussions and activities are welcoming spaces where youth can feel safe sharing difficult experiences, discussing personal issues, developing friendships, problem-solving with other youth and adult mentors, and engaging as leaders.
