What is Q Chat Space?

Q Chat Space provides live, chat-based, professionally facilitated, online support and discussion groups for LGBTQ+ teens 13-19.

Check out this video to see what joining a group is like for teens.

What are youth participants saying?

  • "Keep doing what you're doing. I've been joining chats for almost three years and what you're doing for us is amazing! Thank you so much!"
  • "Q Chat Space gave me a place to be around others who I could relate to, people who actually understood what I was going through and gave me a place to experiment and try new things to learn more about myself."
  • "These chats are always so positive and uplifting. The facilitators are amazing and provide great discussion material, and the youth participants are kind and respectful to one another. It creates a somewhat knit community of sorts, where people see each other in different discussions and learn new things."
  • "Q Chat Space let me spread my wings a lot and helped me figure myself out."

Why Q Chat Space?

LGBTQ+ youth need safe opportunities to chat with others like them within a structure that encourages compassionate interactions and discourages bullying and harassment. They don’t like being seen as always in crisis. However, they face many obstacles to accessing in-person resources, from a lack of transportation to an understandable hesitancy to attend face-to-face groups. An LGBTQ+ teen often has no practical way to get to a LGBTQ+ community center, when it’s potentially a hundred miles away (or more). Q Chat Space brings a core service of an LGBTQ+ community center, a support group, directly to the teen’s digital device.

A study assessing the utility, feasibility, and acceptability of Q Chat Space found that the program "offers promising strategies to address the risk factors implicated in LGBTQ youth health and wellbeing."

How do you keep the space safe and secure?

Like in-person spaces, there are always adult facilitators present to moderate conversation. If needed, facilitators are able to mute and remove participants, and administrators are able to remove participants from the chat platform completely. Participants can be  anonymous, only sharing a username, and all data is encrypted.
