Community group for LGBTI+ youth

What is BraveLab?

BraveLab is a safe space for LGBTI+ young people aged 14 to 29. Here they can meet and discuss issues important to them, including awareness of their LGBTI+ identity, coming out, relationships with family, issues at school and work, mental health, HIV/AIDS prevention and more. BraveLab is an incubator for building confident, capable and courageous young leaders of the LGBTI community.

Who can participate?

BraveLab is open to LGBTI+ young people between the ages of 14 and 29 who are looking for an environment of peers with whom to talk about issues important to them, share experiences and, most importantly, feel part of a community.

When and how group meetings are held?

During the epidemic, the group meets twice a month in a hybrid format – online and on-site at the Rainbow Hub Community Center.

Become a BraveLab member!

If you are between the ages of 14 and 29, identify as being on the LGBTI spectrum, and want to be part of a community of inspired and inspiring young people, BraveLab is your place!
