please see the “GSAs in WNY” page.

While GLYS does not have sites in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans or Wyoming Counties, we will do our best to list resources for GLBTQ youth and their friends that are available in those areas.  If you know of a resource that should be included, please let us know!

Please let us know of faculty/staff in your school are who are helping to make school safer for you and your GLBTQ friends.  We will provide you with a GLYS

Gender counseling
Transitioning genders can be a profoundly liberating experience. At times, it may also be emotionally painful and isolating. I’ll help you sort through the questions and concerns you may have at any point in the process. My goal is to be a support for you and a collaborative part of your treatment team.
