LGBTQIA+ Youth Spaces

SPOT & Rainbow Phoenix

At Planned Parenthood we believe that sexuality is a natural, healthy, life-long part of being human. All people, regardless of gender, identity, or sexual orientation, have rights that need to be respected. We believe that every individual has a right to openly express oneself without fear, shame, or exploitation.

Our LGBTQIA+ youth spaces embrace these beliefs.

We host two groups for young people:

  • SPOT (Space to be Proud and Open Together) is based out of our West Chester Health Center.
  • Rainbow Phoenix, formed in partnership with the LGBT Equality Alliance of Chester County, for young people who live in the Phoenixville area. 

Join Us

Our groups are open to LGBTQIA+ youth ages 14 through 18. 

Meetings are facilitated by trained staff and volunteers from PPSP.

Contact us at [email protected] for additional information.

What We Do

Our youth spaces provide an environment where LGBTQIA+ young people can feel accepted and empowered -- and where sexual and gender identity can be embraced without fear of violence, harassment, or judgment.

The groups promote understanding and respect for all through education, support, advocacy, creative expression, and friendship.

Social & Recreational

We provide a safe space for youth to create lasting friendships and enjoy movie nights, game nights, food, and other self-care activities.


We host programs and discussions with PPSP facilitators, guest speakers, and professionals from a variety of fields. Topics can include: coming out, safer sex, and LGBTQIA+ history and much more.


Our main goal is to provide LGBTQIA+ youth with tools to feel comfortable in their identity and help them find a sense of community through resources and outreach.
