Embracing Identities (EI)

We embrace all identities.

Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth

Penny Lane Center’s Embracing Identities is designed to help LGBTQ+ Transitional Age Youth (TAY: ages 16-25 years old). Embracing Identities (EI) provides support and educational groups for LGBTQ+ TAY and their parents and caregivers. EI has a training program for service providers, County and City departments, schools, and others who support youth.

Embracing Identities also helps to guide LGBTQ+ TAY to needed supports and resources that are accepting of all. Currently this program is available only in Service Areas 3 and 7, including East LA, Pasadena, Altadena, El Monte, and surrounding areas.
