The Resources4Teens website was started to not only help you academically, but personally and socially as well. Most people agree that the teen years can be the most challenging. You have so much on your plate and so much to figure out. One thing that you shouldn't have to worry about or question is if it is "ok" for you to have a different sexual orientation from most or a different anything from everybody else. You are perfect as you are. If you are around people who are preventing you from feeling good and confident about yourself, stop hanging out with them. Sadly I realize that this can't always be helped, especially if those people are your parents or family members. This is why it is important for you to know that there is a lot of support out there for you. There are many places you can go and people you can call who can help. Visit the Resources4Teens LGBT page for a list of some of these resources.
