QCAD serves as a safe meeting space for LGBTQ+ people of all ages and offers a variety of social/support groups for youth and adults alike.
Historically, we have provided LGBTQ+ youth and their allies a safe, accepting place to gather. After much consideration, we have decided to end this group indefinitely following our long hiatus thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. We would encourage anyone seeking a similar group for youth to visit clockinc.org for information on current groups.

We at Spectrum provide support, information and education for transitioning persons, transgender individuals and those questioning their gender identity. Meeting times and locations vary. Contact us by using the Connect box below!

Gay and Gray is QCAD's social support and advocacy group for LGBTQ+ seniors in the Quad Cities. Meeting times and locations vary. Contact us by using the Connect box below!
The Joyce Wiley Memorial Scholarship was created in 2020 to honor QCAD's founder and to help others carry on her legacy of social activism. The scholarship provides financial support for a member of the LGBTQIA community pursuing a college degree or specialized training. The next round of Applications will be available Spring 2022.
QCAD works with local K-12 schools through our Safe Schools Committee to provide inclusive spaces for LGBTQ+ students; a snippet of accomplishments for this committee include assisting in the formation of Gender and Sexuality Alliance's and hosting a conference in 2018. Our committee is generally made up of school administrators, educators, and counselors. Contact us today to become a volunteer!
