Review for Free2Be (Free2Be LGBTQ Resource Center & Free2Be Safe Anti-Violence Project), Huntsville, AL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This program fulfills a great need in the Alabama area. There are so many LGBTQ youth that have been turned away by their families, churches, friends and schools for simply being who they are. This organization provides resources to these valued members of society. They have made a huge difference in many lives and manage to do the best they can with meager finding. It my hope that this vital program get as much funding as possible so that even more lives can be saved.

Review for Free2Be (Free2Be LGBTQ Resource Center & Free2Be Safe Anti-Violence Project), Huntsville, AL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am both a volunteer for this group as well as a donor. James Robinson is an awesome person who has a never ending love for humankind and believes strongly in civil and human rights for all. I am proud to be affiliated with GLBT Advocacy & Youth Services, Inc. I am even more proud to be a friend of James Robinson. We have worked together for many years in the public school system. We have seen it all when it comes to the abuse, bullying and indifference to children. This organization is the salvation for kids in the south who find themselves in impossible situations. They provide support, love, resources for these children/youth who otherwise may feel there is no option for them other than suicide. The real life stories that come to the attention of this advocacy group are nothing short of completely heartbreaking. Until I got involved with this group, I had no idea how fast and large this problem has gotten. There are far too many children as well as adults who are "shunned" or abused by their families, friends, community simply for being who they are. To me, this is totally unacceptable in this day and age. People are people period. I wish labels could be completely eliminated and replaced by being individuals. I think a lot of the problems come from misinformation, misunderstanding, and just plain ignorance. This group is out there, making people aware of the problem and offering ways for others to help. I totally support GLBT Advocacy & Youth Services, Inc. and encourage others to check out the work they do and help in anyway possible. We are all children of God...the details really don't matter.
