Our Mission Statement

Lambert house is a center for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and questioning youth that empowers youth through the development of leadership, social, and life skills.

House History

Lambert House began in the late 1980's as a group of youth and youth-supporters who came together in order to create ways for sexual minority youth to meet. As the grassroots effort took form, the Association of Gay and Lesbian Youth Advocates (AGLYA) carved out its existence. In 1991 AGLYA seized an opportunity to lease an old Victorian house in Capitol Hill, Seattle's queer neighborhood. In 1993 AGLYA became an independent organization named after Gray Lambert, a local queer youth advocate. Within two years the board hired the first paid staff members. Today, Lambert House has a national reputation as a leading organization in the Northwest for queer youth.


Lambert House serves a diverse group of youth. About 50% of the youth who come to Lambert House are youth of color; a little over half of the youth are male; most of the remaining half are female, with about five percent identifying as transgender.
