Free2Be  (Alabama)

downloadFree2Be is dedicated to engaging in effective advocacy for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. We are committed to ensuring the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of youth and young adults struggling due to sexual orientation or gender identity issues.

Our direct social services and our outreach and education is conducted through the Free2Be Safe Anti-Violence Project. This project is a regional endeavor to address Intimate Partner Violence, Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Bullying, and other forms of violence which damage all of us as individuals and as a society. This project is the first of its kind in Alabama to be designed to meet the culturally specific needs of LGBTQ people. With your continued support we work to help survivors overcome trauma while providing public education and services to support the development of healthy relationships. We provide support groups for youth, young adults, transgender adults, as well as, counseling and resource referrals.  In addition to the Free2Be Safe AVP we operate the Free2Be LGBTQ Resource Center.  Our Resource Center is the only Center in  Alabama serving the LGBTQ community.  The Center houses our support groups, community meetings, volunteer workspaces, and the planning office for Rocket City Pride.
