Iris Youth Group

Iris is the Spencer Pride Youth group intended for LGBTQ+ teens & allies ages 12-19. 

We meet on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month from 5-6 PM (at the Spencer Pride commUnity center & through Zoom). Our group has two youth Leads & one adult Coach, as well as several adult volunteers who help.

Our mission is aligned with that of Spencer Pride: To make Indiana a more welcoming place for ALL people.  As a group, we work on projects to help others understand more about what it is like to be an LGBTQ+ teen. We also meet to provide a safe place for teens to gather, spend time, & have fun together.  Iris Youth Group has been part of of Spencer Pride since May of 2017.

Participating youth do not need to be from Owen County; any south central Indiana LGBTQIA teen can participate.  

We Include Everyone.
