Hey all you kick ass humans at Feminist.com, My name is Emily, and I'm 14 years old. I'm a very independant young woman, and I'm secure with my sexuality. I am a lesbian. I guess my problem is that I live in a real small town and there's not a lot of gay teenagers. I feel misplaced, and I was wondering if you knew of any organizations for gay teens, or whatever. thanks...Emily

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com. There is a great organization called the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which does tons of work with gay, lesbian, bixsexual teenagers. Although they are based in New York City, they should be able to share resources with you and maybe even link you up with other organizations in your area. To learn more about Hetrick-Martin you should contact them directly at:

The Hetrick-Martin Institute
2 Astor Place
New York, New York 10003
(212) 674-2400
TTY (212) 674-8695
fax (212) 674-2650

Or if you want, you can send me your address and I can have them send you information. Thanks again for your note and good luck creating a like-minded community - Amy

Editors Note: You might want to look at Stonewall Youth (based in Olympia, WA.) as an example of LesBiGay youth organizing.
