Resources for Youth

If you are a young person, or the parent of a young person, you know the challenges that school and social settings (including social media) can bring to those who identify as LGBTQ+. There are many excellent organizations for high school kids and young adults that provide educational support, mental health services, and social opportunities for LGBTQ+ youth and their friends.
