The Youth Group Intervention
My name is Olivia. I live in North Carolina. When I was 14 one of my friends outed me to the entire church that I was going to at the time. And the Youth Group decided to call a “meeting.” We went to a local coffee shop and proceeded with the “Meeting.” The youth leader was shaky and fidgety, and kept saying things like “we hear you want to be a lesbian.” Like it was something I was aspiring to do or be.
Luckily the Assistant Pastor was there and ended up sticking up for me. I no longer go to that church or any church in fact. Because I no longer felt safe. WE NEED to stand up and help the youth as much as we can. So that present and future youth aren’t put in a situation where they feel unsafe. I hope my story helps in some way shape or form.

Many faiths espouse values such as commitment to social justice, love and acceptance. But unfortunately, some also use their doctrines and guidebooks to attack, condemn and discriminate against gay and transgender people.
