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 for additional information.
