Resources for Youth

Being a teen isn't always easy. And if you're gay, bi, or otherwise different, things can sometimes really suck! Part of the reason I wrote Rainbow Boys is 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:
