  1. My only wish is these types of programs existed throughout the country. I'm very happy for those kids. I just wish every GLBT kid out there had a safe place to go, even for just a little while each day to build up their strength and character.

  2. Wow. She really said "sexual preference", didn't she?

  4. I am nearing 50 and am so happy to see these teens have these programs and opportunities, that my generation did not have. Being Gay is NOT your identity. It is a very small part of who we are as human beings. I commend Kamora for her work with these kids. It's a slow process, but we will get to a point, (and I hope I get to see it in my lifetime) where your sexuality does not matter.

  5. I'm a part of the True Colors family and I just want to say thank you for posting this. All of us do hard work and we do look for a brighter future. Hopefully the whole country will have programs like this eventually.

  6. I need to write a bestseller or win the lottery so I can fund this program nationwide. Seriously.

  8. There should be a program like this in every county of every state in the United States. Kids need a safe place to talk, share and support one another, whether they are just coming to terms with their sexuality, are openly gay or lesbian or have family that are gay. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    Best wishes,
