Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) Resources for South Eastern Idaho and Idaho Falls

Although southeast Idaho is a great place to liveespecially for those who love the outdoors—it is not the most welcoming to LGBT individuals. Building a sense of belonging is a shared responsibility, especially for those of us living in smaller communities on this side of the state. We can stand united to fight discrimination, to end school bullyingand we might as well have fun in the process! This website is being developed to inform everyone of LGBT resources currently available in Southeast Idaho. It is my hope that we will continue to build a strong LGBT community to make our home an even better place to live.
