Donate Now to Provide Safe Spaces for GLBTQ Youth in Boston
While progress has been made in addressing some of the health and social issues that have compromised the health, well-being and dignity of GLBTQ Americans, gay and bisexual men of color are contracting HIV at alarming rates.
GLBTQ youth, particularly youth of color, are more likely than their white heterosexual peers to be victims of bullying and violence, contributing to higher suicide rates in this group. There is much work to be done in order to achieve the health and social justice that all people deserve, particularly GLBTQ youth of color.
GLBTQ youth of color are often reluctant to seek help in the community due to homophobia, racism, discrimination and cultural insensitivity.Boston GLASS provides a safe place where needed resources are available along with advocacy and community building to help young people achieve the self-sufficiency and autonomy they deserve.
Supporting Boston GLASS allows young people like Leo not only to create a vision for themselves, but also to develop the confidence and skills necessary to turn vision into reality.
