In House Programming
Programming was determined by the youth initially. Sharon and the facilitators would ask them what they wanted to talk about, and then would bring in speakers/create programs centered around those topics. Topics/Programs covered were:
- Safe sex and sex education (both intimate and clinical POVs)
- Coming Out
- Navigating school
Outreach and Education
Advertising for Bi-GLYAH was a group effort from both members and facilitators. Members would leave little cards at bookstores/libraries next to books on LGBTQ+ issues to get word out about the meetings, and facilitators developed a safe house network where families would take in LGBTQ+ youth when needed.

Facilitators also would speak at high schools and churches to talk about LGBTQ+ youth issues and concerns. Facilitators would work with teachers to help them create safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in schools. The Eash Potter Scholarship was also developed to help graduating LGBTQ+ youth and allies. The group attended Central PA Pride Festivals, with their signatures stuffed frogs to spread awareness of their group.
