These stories are the results of Google, Teh Gays, and MSN news searches for "gay teen". It is an unfortunate fact that gay teens are often victimized. Don't tolerate abuse. If someone tries to harm you because they think that you are gay, don't put up with it.

We suggest you look into PFLAG. Parents, Familes, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays is helpful for young people who are struggling with coming out, and for families who have gay members.

Also check out GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network. They are famous for helping students set up GSA groups in their schools.
