About This Event

Click on the link above to listen to Big Sister Cheryl and Big Sister Anna's experience as gay Bigs in our mentoring program.

We're hosting a Pride Bowling event to increase awareness that LGBTQ+ Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Big Couples are welcome as DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. At the same time, we’ll have some fun raising funds for resources needed for our Littles!

LGBTQ+ youth face extremely high rates of bullying, depression and homelessness. Thanks to being named a pilot site by Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and for providing a welcoming environment to the LGBTQ+ community over the past few years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay is committed to helping LGBTQ+ Bigs and Littles through active training and support.

Partner with us to celebrate the beauty of diversity! Help a new generation of Littles who need Bigs (mentors) and inspire all those interested in mentoring to come out, be proud and become a Defender!
