Our Rainbow Cafe is a support and social group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth and their allies. We meet monthly for dances and lounge meetings. Our dances have a live DJ and pizza and our lounges have open mic, karaoke, board games, movies, and deeper conversations. All of our events have frriendship making and an awesome time.
We have students represented from several junior high and high schools around Bergen County. Our dances have about 60 students attending and our monthly lounge meetings have about 10-15 people attend.
Each event is chaperoned by the pastor, members of the congregation, volunteers from PFLAG, teachers, and licensed therapists. The youth have a safe place where they can meet new friends and talk about life as an LGBTQ person. While the events are sponsored by the church, the meetings themselves are not religious in nature. If you would like to speak with someone about a religious question, we are more than happy to help you. All people of faith or people of no faith are invited to attend. There is no proselytizing allowed.
