I first became involved with GLBTAYS when I attended the Community Discussion on Bullying for a class I was taking. Since then I’ve been motivated and inspired by James Robinson’s tireless efforts at raising awareness and creating resources for the members of the GLBTQ community in Alabama. I grew up in North Alabama and I can understand how isolating it can be for anyone who even appears to be “different.” James is providing an invaluable resource for the local community and at the same time promoting awareness by speaking at colleges, mediating with schools and attending various events to help promote equality. I have never seen one person work so hard to make a difference. Over the past year, the national media finally started paying attention to the problems faced by the gay community and its youth in particular. Gay teens face more adversity than almost any other group. They are at a higher risk for suicide, homelessness and bullying. It is wonderful to see an organization in our state that is so dedicated to doing something about it.
