Homeless LGBT youth – a sad story with some positive news.

It is a sad state of affairs that so many LGBT kids are thrown out of their homes simply because of who they are. This is probably the worst and most damaging sort of bullying – when a parent rejects their own child. The emotional repercussions can be devastating and life on the streets can be equally as damaging.

Happily  there are organizations in different countries that are working to give these kids dignity and allowing them to pick themselves up and live full and productive lives. The Albert Kennedy Trust in the UK is one such organization.

Give if you can and visit their website here.
