About Youth Forum
MoCo LGBTQ Youth Forum is a safe space for all Montgomery County LGBTQ+ youth. This group organizes monthly open-mic coffeehouses and an annual Pride Prom where kids feel free to be their authentic selves.
The MoCo LGBTQ Youth Forum started in 2014 by the parents of a teen in order to create a comfortable environment for LGBTQ+ youth in Montgomery County, Maryland. Since then, the MoCo LGBTQ Youth Forum hosts social and educational events throughout the school year, including monthly open mic coffeehouses and an annual Pride Prom.
In 2019, MoCo LGBTQ Youth Forum was incorporated as an official youth program under the MoCo Pride Center, a 501(c)(3) that works to build, support, and advocate for a stronger and more diverse LGBTQ community in Montgomery County, Maryland.
The Youth Forum is also supported by a coalition consisting of Rainbow Youth Alliance and Rockville United Church.
