ADVOCATES FOR YOUTH
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (GLBTQ) youth face tremendous difficulties growing up in a society where heterosexuality is often presented as the only acceptable orientation, and homosexuality is regarded as deviant. Research suggests that homophobia and heterosexism greatly contribute to higher rates of suicide, violence victimization, risk behavior for HIV infection, and substance abuse among GLBTQ youth as compared to their heterosexual peers. In recent years, however, a number of promising programs have been established to help GLBTQ youth gain the skills and support they need to develop into healthy adults in a society that largely rejects them. Advocates for Youth has also developed a program to help decrease the isolation felt by many GLBTQ youth. Using the Internet as an intervention strategy, Advocates has established several Web sites targeting young people with information, support, and referrals regarding adolescent sexual and reproductive health.
