Remember: You Are Not Alone!

Almost every GLBTQ youth has questions about their sexuality at some point in their life. Maybe now you are wondering about your own feelings. Right now as you read this, others just like you are going through the exact same experience. In the Central Florida area alone, there are thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and questioning youth. The purpose of the LYA is to find a safe place for these kids to gather and be among their peers so they may fully understand their uniqueness and participate as a diverse member of this community.
