When BAGLY was founded in 1980, it was the only GLBTQ youth-specific organization in Massachusetts, and one of the few in the country.  Now it is part of a local and national network of GLBTQ and mainstream individuals, institutions and organizations working together to impact the lives of GLBTQ young people.

Collaborative relationship building with community resources is a hallmark of BAGLY’s programming.  We’ve seen first hand how collaboration increases our membership’s ability to “community map” supportive places and to identify allies and opportunities within neighborhoods, communities and organizations.
