Support for LGBTQ Youth

Posted on 02 March 2011

Nora Olsen is the author of a new novel for young adults, THE END: Five Queer Kids Save The World. Last fall, in response to the rash of teen suicides that made the headlines (and all the others that didn’t make the headlines) she organized a rally in Beacon in support of our youth. Zara Ansell is the outreach coordinator at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center in Kingston. Both women speak about the ongoing need for community support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LBGTQ) youth.

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among LGBTQ youth.

    It’s so great to hear about the rising support in the community, and I hope that Zara is right about this going down in history books as the time for LGBTQ rights.
