A Lifetime movie several years ago, which itself took a decade or more to get made (deemed too controversial), underscored the ongoing crisis faced by LGBT/Q youth. "A Child Is Listening" remains as timely today as when the original real-life story occurred more than 30 years ago.
That's incredibly sad, given or dispute progress on marriage equality.
At my 40th high school reunion this spring, I shared my life story as a gay man and was heartened by the support, particularly from friends now the fathers of gay youth.
They gave generously to support AThousandMoms.Org. (You can, too.)
And read a youth's story on his homelessness... part of the epidemic in this country, and much worse around the world.
