Virtual Programs

When our physical space is closed, youth can continue to access our programs online, and participate in an active community on our Discord server.

In-person Programs

Tuesdays and Fridays, drop-in hours are open in person at the Inside Out space, 223 N. Wahsatch Ave.! We are moving forward with a hybrid model to ensure the widest possible access to our services and programs.

Our mission

Inside Out empowers, educates, and advocates for LGBTQ+ youth from the Pikes Peak Region in Southern Colorado. Inside Out does this by creating safe space, support systems and teaching life skills to all youth in our community, and working to make our community safer and more accepting of gender and sexual orientation diversity.

Inside Out Youth Services (est. 1990) is the only nonprofit organization in El Paso County that serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning youth. We provide a safe accepting space for young adults between ages 13-24. All of our groups and services are provided free of charge with the hope that any aid we provide will further the happiness and health of LGBTQ+ young people in the Colorado Springs area.

Get Involved

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ youth? In addition to accepting donations, Inside Out offers multiple advocacy and volunteer opportunities.


Our programs support youth through discussion groups, drop-ins (online and in-person), outings, leadership opportunities, counseling, and food and clothing support. Our goal is to ensure that each of the lives we touch goes on to live a healthy and long existence as their authentic happy self.


Our adult workshops train parents and youth-serving adults how to advocate and support their youth through allyship and community resiliency. We also work with community partners, schools, and organizations to advocate for youth and teach them how to be inclusive, change-making leaders.


Every dollar you spend with us is put directly toward aiding and assisting the LGBTQ+ youth of the Pikes Peak region. Your thoughtful donation makes a big difference for the youth attending Inside Out.
