We are here...inventing the future!

We provide advocacy, support, and outreach services for the lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer community, and our allies, in Joliet, IL and the surrounding area. Our Mission is to build community and personal alliances to better our quality of life no matter what our sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expressions are. We provide education, and entertainment, to celebrate our diversity, and to inform others about issues affecting our lives.
We don't believe in the status quo. We believe in equality for everyone!


We are a volunteer organization. We have no paid positions. Please help us to advocate for our community.
