PFY Coffeehouse logo with rainbow pride colors and transgender pride colors



Coffeehouse is PFY’s longest-running program, providing a safe and substance-free environment where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) youth and allies can come together every Friday night from 7 pm to 11:30 pm to make friends and have fun. 

Each Friday there is a different activity, ranging from guest speakers and performers to drag nights and talent shows. Coffeehouse is strictly a youth-only space, open to youth ages 13 to 20. There is free and confidential HIV/Syphilis testing available every Friday night.

First time at Coffeehouse? Please arrive by 8pm to attend NPOP, our New Person Orientation Program! NPOP provides an overview of PFY's programs & services, a chance to meet and connect with PFY staff, and a short, affirming sexual health workshop.

No person over 20 years old who is not staff is permitted in the Coffeehouse space during programming to respect confidentiality. There is always a professional counselor available for drop-in counseling, which is free and confidential.
