When I was 13, I was on the verge of suicide. I was the only lesbian student in my high school, and I took a lot of heat from the students and staff for it. My days were miserable, I was the victim of numerous hate crimes. In the spring of 2004, my school's Gay/Straight Alliance registered for the True Colors Conference. The conference was held at Central CT State University that year. I had no idea what to expect, I'd never been to the conference before. We pulled onto the campus at 8 o'clock that morning and my life changed forever. Within minutes of arriving, we were greeted by Robin, Nico, and the rest of the True Colors Staff. There were hundreds, if not thousands of GLBTQ youth gathered. I was in shock. Here I was, one girl from a small, conservative christian town, surrounded by all of these fantastic, carefree, very gay people. Two days later, I left the conference with a completly new mindset. I was not alone. I had resources, new freinds, and a self esteem boost that was responsible for me surviving my years in high school. Through True Colors, I found a place where I belonged. I found people just like me. I found resources who stood up for me, and helped me work with my school's administration to stop the bullying and hate crimes. Suddenly, in a matter of two days, I had all of the love and support that any scared, depressed, lonely 13 year old girl could ever need. I attended the True Colors Conference for 7 years. After graduationg high school, I presetned a few times at the conference too, as my way of giving back to the community that saved me. I'm 22 now, I live with my partner of a year and we're hoping to get married in 2014. I can honestly say, that without Robin and the rest of the folks at True Colors, I would not be here. Their love, dedication, kindness, determination, support, and hard work has made a difference in so many lives, not just mine. They bring together the most incredible people you'll ever meet, and they work to make the world a better place for the GLBTQ youth they serve. I owe my life to True Colors, and I know plenty of people who can say the same. That's what makes True Colors a GREAT Nonprofit.
