LGBTQ youth should be safe, affirmed, and celebrated wherever they are – at home, in school, in the community, the child welfare system, or the juvenile justice system. For far too many youth, this is not yet a reality. The following legal questions were posed by youth, and we hope the answers will help to empower youth to make informed choices, protect themselves, advocate for equality, and stand up for those unable to do so on their own.

You can search for questions and answers under the topics AT SCHOOL, TAKING CARE, AT WORK, and IN THE WORLD.

All of the organizations listed in this guide want to be helpful to you and many work directly with youth. Please reach out!

Please keep the questions coming! We will answer additional questions in a second version of this guide.
