Deadline NOW: LGBT Support Groups
Friday, September 18, 2009
Growing up can be difficult for many young people in our community. It can be even more complex if one is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered (LGBT).
Fortunately there are groups ready to help young people find support. Brenda Spurlin is the founder of Rainbow Area Youth (RAY), a support group for self-identified LGBT youth and questioning teens.
Sherry Tripepi is the Executive Director of Equality Toledo, which works for equality for all Ohioans regardless of their marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, through education, anti-defamation efforts and activism.
