Support : Providing Resources for LGBTQ People and Their Families
- Information & Referrals
SOJOURN staff answer all types of questions, from what school systems are the most supportive of LGBTQ families to who may be a good therapist.
- Tum Tum: Atlanta’s LGBTQ Jewish Youth Forum
Thanks to the grant we received from JumpSpark, we have launched a pilot program to facilitate a youth group for LGBTQ teens and their allies. The group meets monthly to build community, tackle difficult issues, and gain leadership and advocacy skills, and gathers for four additional events each year. There are currently no other formal programs in our area dedicated to serving LGBTQ youth. (Tum Tum is a term that appears in Jewish Rabbinic literature referring to a person whose sex is unknown.)
- Q Chat Space
Can’t get to Sojourn in person? Want to connect with other LGBTQ+ youth more frequently? Join conversations on Q Chat Space
Like Sojourn’s in-person youth group, Tum Tum, Q Chat Space online discussion groups give you a dedicated space to meet other youth and discuss topics relevant to your identities and experiences - it’s just online! It is not a forum. It is live and chat-based; there is no video or audio. Everyone is chatting during the same pre-scheduled time. Facilitators are people who work at LGBTQ centers across the US. Go to www.qchatspace.org to check it out and see what groups topics and times.
