PFLAG Lafayette/Tippecanoe County, in conjunction with Pride Lafayette and Citizens for Civil Rights, oversees a local LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) youth group. PRSYM (Positive Reflections of Young Sexual Minorities) is a group for youth that is led by youth under the sponsorship and guidance of the above three organizations.
PRYSM was formed to serve as a social-support outlet for Lafayette, Indiana area youth who are dealing with issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity. Our community can be a threatening place for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender-identified people. We hope to give youth a safe place to gather that is free from harrassment and other forms of bigotry. The peer support fostered by the group will help youth improve their self-esteem and give them opportunities to form friendships with others who are going through similar experiences.
PRYSM is largely a social group; friends and allies are welcome.
