Gay Youth Resources

Being a teen isn't always easy. And if you're gay, bi, or otherwise different, sometimes life can really suck! Part of the reason I wrote my books was to let you know you're not alone. There is hope and help. If you need someone to talk to, or help with an issue, check out the following resources:
