I give to this organization because I believe in what they are doing and how they are helping our young people to grow, blossom, and just be the great people that they are. The staff is very dedicated to and I am happy to be able to contribute as I feel that they are very deserving.

True Colors is an organization that is dishonest as best. They fail to present both side of the issue of homosexuality to youth. The youth that they serve are very vulnerable and they come to programs run by this organization often with the question "What do I do? I think I might be gay." Youth served are always encouraged to explore the path of homosexuality rather than the path of heterosexuality or celibacy. The leadership of this group will not dare tell their clients that homosexuality may be a CHOICE! It's a shame that such a biased group has been allowed to have such an influence on our kids.

True Colors is an amazing organization. I happened upon the organization by chance - Kamora, director of the mentor program, sat and chatted with me during a non-GLBT event at which I was set to present. I was more excited about the mentor program than my event and followed up with Kamora about the organization later on. As a lesbian who made it through her teen years, I immediately thought of how different my life might have been had I the opportunity to have a GLBTQI mentor, a GSA, or a organization like TC. I then met Robin, executive director, and I learned of the myriad of services offered by TC and I was officially hooked. I joined the Board and became a mentor. The importance of the organization cannot be downplayed. Although our community has seen so much progress we have so far to go. Bullying of GLBTQI youth continues, suicide rates for our youth is up, and there are not enough support services for kids in this population. True Colors offers so much hope and support to Connecticut's youth each day. And once a year they go global and host the largest GLBTQI youth conference. If you haven't attended the conference you should - GLBTQI or an ally - it is amazingly empowering to sit in a room with 3000 GLBTQI and ally youth. Yes, I wish I had this organization when I was younger - I wish I had at least one person who then could have tole me what Robin, Kamora, Leah say each day to a kid - there is nothing wrong with you for being gay. To be involved with the organization is a blessing. True Colors gets my highest praise!
