L G B T Q
Despite the evidence that Americans are getting more tolerant of the LGBT Community, parent still reject their children when they come out - ejecting them from their homes and ceasing all financial support. The staggering number of homeless LGBTQ youth both nationally and city-wide is astounding. Of homeless youth ages 13-18 in Philly, 54% are LGBTQ.
Many of them are unwelcome in their own homes, which leads to foster care, where many are also unwelcome.
So as you can see, the decision to come out is not easy and must be appoached with caution.
I'm not a therapist but I promise you this:
I WILL LISTEN!
I WILL CARE!
