LGBTQ PenPalsYou can sign up for our LGBTQ PenPal program and correspond by either mail or email. It's a way to connect with other youth in a safe way.

Here's how it works...

  2. You send in proof of your age (a copy of your school ID, driver's license, or birth certificate)
  3. You will be notified of your penpal's first name and their contact information and they will be notified of your first name and contact information. 
  4. From there it is all up to you to write/email each other!

Very Important:

All youth in the penpal network must be between the ages of 12 and 20. To make sure that this safety guideline is followed, you MUST send us a copy of your school ID, driver's license, or birth certificate.  You can copy and mail it to us or scan it and email it to us.

All of the information you submit is totally confidential and only your first name and last initial will be given to your pen pal.

If you wish to be placed on the IYG Pen Pal Network, please fill out the application and return it to IYG along with a copy of a document that proves your age.
