  • Support for families, allies and people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning.
  • Education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ.
  • Advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws to achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ.
