Gay/Lesbian/Bi Teens/Expert Profile

Expertise

I can answer questions about coming out to friends, family, others in your life (students at school, other relatives), homophobic people around you, anything to do with one's sexuality, including all the many sexual orientations. I may not be able to give a perfect answer every time, but I'll definitely try my hardest to help.

Experience in the area

I have many friends who are gay or bisexual; I am myself, as well as a closeted family member.

Organizations

N/A

Education/Credentials

I'm still in high school, but I don't think that limits how much I can help someone.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

50% of all gay and lesbian youth report that their parents reject them due to their sexual orientation. At least 75% of crimes against GLBT persons are not reported to anyone.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Gay students hear anti-gay slurs as often as 26 times each day; faculty intervention occurs in only about 3% of those cases.
