Review for Out Youth Austin, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Outyouth is a wonderful support organization. If there had been something like it when I was the age of these youth, I am CERTAIN that some of the people I went to school with would still be alive today, as they took thier own lives because of harrasment about thier sexuality. Sexual Identity is the #1 cause of teen suicide, and an organization like OutYouth gives trese young people a chance to discover who they really are, and BE who they really are, in an envirionment of support. My one criticism, is that the BOD of OutYouth should be trying to help these kids be good people, who just happen to be GLBTQ, instead of GLBTQ people, who just happen to be good. To "Fearlessly be Yourself" should mean to be yourself without fear, NOT shove your sexual identitiy in everyone's face.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the youth have a chance to be who they really are in a suppotive envirionment.
