About Project R.E.A.L

Project R.E.A.L. (Real Empowerment on All Levels) offers free social events that bring together the local young LGBTQ+ community helping build peer support. Project R.E.A.L. provides sexual health advocacy and also serves as a point of contact between the client and community resources such as housing, HIV and STD testing, therapy, etc.

A Core Group of volunteers is the driving force behind what happens at Project R.E.A.L. They plan activities each month, as well as large scale community events.

For LGBTQ+ young adults ages 18 to 29
