Through a new partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, we are matching youth who identify as LGBTQ with LGBTQ adults in the new Big Pride program. The Bigs will be able to help the Littles navigate the challenges associated with “coming out” during their teen years. We know that LGBTQ teens are at greater risk for depression, suicide, and substance use, so providing them with an additional, caring adult who understands is an important component in their overall well-being and success in life.
