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.
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@example.com for additional information.
