North Shore Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Youth


  • Overview of Organization and Services:
    NAGLY was founded in 1992 to provide a safe fun place on the North Shore for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Youth. A place where you are understood and can understand others and a place to identify and give and get respect. It’s a place where you will be welcomed, and learn to belong.

    It is a place for youth ages 14 – 23, a welcoming, safe & fabulous place for those of us who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning for those of us who live, go to school and/or work on the North Shore of Massachusetts. We strive to be open and inclusive for both allies and youth like us. We talk about what’s important to us – ourselves, our relationships, our families, “coming out” at school or work, combating homophobia, bullying, gay history & activism, community service and…PRIDE

    It’s not always easy being young and gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. There is fear of being different and the suspicion of others. There is misunderstanding and loneliness. There is ridicule and harassment - at school, at work and at home. There is risk – losing your home, friends and family. All of these things often lead people to isolate. At nAGLY you find a place of belonging and people like yourself who are at different stages of becoming the people they are meant to be.

    People ages 14-23 meet every Tuesday in the Universalist Church of Salem, MA at 211 Bridge street from 6:00PM -9:00PM with the exception of major holidays.
