Welcome to Q Plus!

We provide safe and supportive spaces for LGBTQ+ youth to feel empowered and uplifted!

Our Story

Q Plus started as a grassroots, community based, youth led, volunteer run organization with the goal of filling gaps we saw in queer youth programming across Connecticut. We started running events with a queer youth open mic in May 2019. In March of 2022, we officially received our 501(c)3 status from the IRS. We've continued to expand our programming to include weekly youth groups in towns across the state, along with hosting Open Mics, Summer Camps, and providing school support and GSA services.

  • Mar 09, 2024, 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST
    The Glastonbury Boathouse, 252 Welles St, Glastonbury, CT 06033, USA
    Join us for our second annual Sweet Treat Gala to raise funds for all the hard work we do at Q+! Thanks to community support, we are able to keep all of our programming and services free to LGBTQ+ youth. We're going to have dinner, entertainment, raffles, and more! This event is 21+.

Our Mission

We work to create more youth accessible spaces, uplift youth voices, and empower queer youth. Our overall goal is to create space for queer youth to be authentically and entirely themselves. Every event and program we support is born of a need identified by queer young people, rather than suggested by adults. Our plan is to continue changing and evolving as the needs of queer youth continue to change and evolve.
