Getting Involved


Besides the weekly peer-support group meetings, we have extra activities like car washes, picnics, movie nights, etc. We participate in the annual events like the Gay Pride Parade in October and go to GayDays at Walt Disney World the first Saturday in June and the AIDS Walk Orlando in April. Some of the activities cost money. The car washes are a great way for everyone to get involve. Plus they generate money for us to help cover the costs.


The ideas are endless. Here are a few of the activities we have done in the past:

  • Movie nights
  • Bowling parties
  • Theatre involvement (We produced a play at the Orlando Fringe Festival in 2007, 2008 & 2010)
  • Theme park trips
  • Participating in community events
  • AIDS Walk
  • Sporting events
  • Picnics
  • Social events


There is no cost to being a member of Orlando Youth Alliance.  Through fundraisers, corporate donations, and events, Orlando Youth Alliance raises funds for general operating costs, marketing, and activities. 



Below are some of the educational opportunities for LGBTQ youth in which the Orlando Youth Alliance gets involved:

  • Semi-annual HIV awareness
  • Safe Schools Summit
  • Pride Parade
  • Health Fairs
  • Public speaking to other groups
  • Career exploration
  • Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gay (PFLAG)
  • LGBT History & Culture classes
