I am new to the Huntsville area and am so impressed that an active organization like this exists in what can be a very hostile part of the country for LGBT individuals. Whether through individual interventions or community events, GLBT Advocacy & Youth Services is a strong part of the Huntsville community. I remember what it was like to grow up in a small Alabama town and to be so very afraid that I was the only gay person in the whole world. That sense of isolation is terrifying. I am grateful that this organization exists so that GLBT youth and adults have a support system and opportunities to form a community. That community is small, but GLBTAYS is working hard to ensure that GLBT individuals feel safe in coming out and joining that community. Visibility and the freedom to proud of who you are is essential to anyone's health and happiness. I'm proud to support GLBTAYS and the very necessary work they are doing to form and enrich a positive GLBT community in Huntsville.
