 The mission of the LGBTQ+ club at Bidwell   is to promote equality among all genders, sexualities, and beliefs. We are a community that believes in understanding before judgement and providing a space for everyone to feel happy in their own skin.

We are open to everyone who either is an ally and wants to participate or is part of the LGBTQ+ community!
