Be A Part Of The Legacy.

Becoming an HMI youth member is easy, and gives you a safe place to join other LGBTQ youth in programs that will lift you up, help you learn, and let you express yourself.

HMI offers new member intakes Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays beginning at 3:30pm and Saturdays beginning at 2:00pm.  They are done on a first come, first serve basis.  After completing their intake, new members are required to attend a New Member Orientation which happens every Wednesday and Friday from 4:00-5:00pm.

You can also call to schedule an appointment for other times, at 212-674-2600, extension 271.

Anyone ages 13-24 can become an HMI member.

You don’t have to be in school or have a permanent address. If you are in education, it doesn’t matter which school you attend. Programs and services are free and we are open 6 days a week, all year-round.

You are welcome here.

Our programs and services are designed with LGBTQ youth in mind. LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, and Questioning. HMI is a safe space for all youth ages 13-24, regardless of sexual orientation or identity. No matter how you identify, you are welcome here. Come join us!
