Being a teen isn't always easy. And if you're LGBT, queer, or otherwise different, sometimes life can really suck!
Part of the reason I write my books 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:
Trevor Helpline for Gay and Lesbian Youth
24 Hrs a Day / 7 Days a Week call 1-866-4-U-TREVOR or 1-866-488-7386.
The GLBT National Youth Talkline
Toll-free 1-800-246-PRIDE (1-800-246-7743)
Services are free and confidential. Telephone volunteers are in their teens and early twenties, and speak with teens and young adults up to age 25 about coming-out issues, relationship concerns, parent issues, school problems, HIV/AIDS anxiety and safer-sex information, and lots more!
