Reviews for SEACOAST OUTRIGHT
Seacoast Outright is an amazing nonprofit organization that teaches and supports not only the youth, but also the facilitators and the public. They make everyone who comes to the Friday night meetings feel welcome and safe to share as much or as little as they feel comfortable. The facilitators also keep materials handy for educational purposes, such as sexuality and gender identity, STD safety/prevention, and birth control, not to be used during meetings of course. Seacoast Outright is awesome and I can think of no better group for the job.
As someone who has lived most of their life in the closet, I wish I had the support that Seacoast offers when I was in my early twenties. If I knew I had a choice and would be supported, I would have lived life differently. Seacoast offers that support and network to youth so that you are not alone in their journey. As part of this non-profit I am glad to be able to give back and let all the youth struggling with self-acceptance know that they have a choice and they are worth it!
As an out-and-proud lesbian in the age 50+ bracket, I wish there was an organization like this in my youth! As a Seacoast Outright facilitator, I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing organization. It brings me great joy to see the camaraderie of the youth in the weekly meetings. To have a safe space to share openly their thoughts, visions, struggles, hopes, humor, pain, dreams, laughter... and much more... is very much needed for our youth.
Such a wonderful organization for LGBTQ+ youth right in the Seacoast area! Adult groups are not an option for teens, and our non hetero confonforming kids have questions and needs! We know LBGTQ+ youth are at risk without support- Seacoast Outright is offering free, accessible, friendly, adult supervised, safe activities to be part of the solution. It is one of a kind in the area filling the void with just the right tone. Outright provides a safe, supportive gathering spot every week that our young people seek and deserve. Dedicated adults facilitate groups for teens to explore gender and sexulaity issues in a comfortable, safe, non judgemental way. . Well done Seacoast Outright!
I think what Seacoast Outright has managed to do in the Seacoast Community is amazing!
The popularity of the Pride parade has been a wonderful thing to behold!
Because of their reputation and history, I have recently become a volunteer. They are a community resource that Seacoast is so lucky to have!
Seacoast Outright provides much-needed support for LGBTQA youth in the Seacoast and beyond. In addition to weekly support groups and additional social events for youth throughout the year, the organization hosts an annual Portsmouth Pride event for the larger Seacoast community--youth and adults, LGBTQ folks and allies alike.
I have found Seacoast Outright to be an amazing charity that does very important work with kids. The volunteers and staff are dedicated to ensuring the teens that come are taking care of and well cared for. Seacoast Outright is also active in the community and represents the spirit of community well.
Seacoast Outright is an amazing organization dedicated to supporting LGBTQ+ youth. The organization is run by dedicated volunteers and staff.
This is a great non-profit and it helps many in the seacoast area of New Hampshire, with different events like pride and youth groups. It's an awesome group

As a facilitator I have been awe struck by these incredibly strong and brave young folks. It is so essential for these youth to have such a powerful resource as Seacoast Outright to provide continued guidance, safe support and affirmations for their daily living. Regularly they need to be reminded what beautiful gifts they are despite the challenges they face. Seacoast Outright is full of passionate leaders and volunteers who provide these youth for what they need.
