Formed in 1983, GLSG (Gay and Lesbian Support Group) started off as a support group for Gay, Lesbians and friends of their community. GLSG changed their name on various occasions. They became GLBSG (Gay Lesbian Bi-sexual Group), GLBSO (Gay Lesbian Bi-sexual Organization), and GLBSTO (Gay Lesbian Bi-sexual Transgender Organization). GLBSTO would then become today’s Kaleidoscope in 2003, which is inclusive of even more people who identify with the LGBTQ+ community
