Growing up is tough. Growing up gay or lesbian (or bi) can make matters even tougher. We here at Bulbagarden wish to show our support to the communities by offering helping hands to our LGBQ youths that join.
As a gay man, I know first hand that we need all the support we can find, and that's what this thread is for. All supporters are welcome and questions and advice covering the LGBQ spectrum (for example, coming out to parents and friends) can go in here.
You may have noticed that I dropped the "T" from the commonly used "LGBTQ" abbreviation. This is because we feel that gender identity issues are different enough to garner their own thread, of which can be found here.
