LGBTQ Support

At Planned Parenthood, where diversity and inclusion are priorities, our Circles philosophy of safety and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning or queer youth makes a real difference in the lives of many young people.  We believe that the self-determined pursuit of sexual health is important for everyone's well-being and quality of life.         

Circles encompasses a number of programs and services that help to create safer environments for LGBTQ people:

  • Peer education groups for high school students in Dutchess, Orange, Ulster and Sullivan Counties. 
  • Social events for young people including:  holiday parties, field trips to museums, art galleries, trips to NYC and the theater.
  • Advocacy training on LGBTQ issues and lobbying trips to Albany to meet with government representatives.  
  • Training and technical assistance for health and human service providers and school districts in our region.
