Who We Are
Four years ago in Mobile, Alabama, a group of community leaders and volunteers came together to create a peer support group for LGBTQ teens. Over time, the support group unearthed broader issues facing LGBTQ youth in the area, underscoring the need for a project that could adequately respond to those issues.

What We Do
Prism United is developing programs for LGBTQ youth and the people who care for them. Our Prism Youth program provides support groups, event nights, and other services to teens (14-18) and pre-teens (10-13). Our Prism Families program provides a support group for parents, siblings, and friends of LGBTQ youth.
From the Executive Directors, Happy Pride month from Prism United! This year, approximately 40 business owners in Mobile agreed to hang pride flags in their establishments to affirm and celebrate the LGBTQ community. Kudos to our friends at Rainbow Mobilefor...
Bent Broadway was directed by Matt Kridel, who spent three years volunteering as a youth group facilitator. The proceeds from the show went to Prism United. Thanks to the cast and crew, the musicians, the Bent Broadway volunteers, the sponsors, and everyone who bought a ticket to support our youth.
The youth have already begun checking out novels from our library. A HUGE “thank you” to everyone else who’s helped us offer this immeasurable resource to the youth.
Prism United responds to the comprehensive needs of LGBTQ youth. Specifically, Prism works to mitigate the psychological, socio-economic, and academic disadvantages caused by repression and victimization.
