We will be leaving “Lou’s Page” up as his responses to questions often asked by LGBTQ youth are still pertinent. Besides, he is still in our hearts!
If you need a therapist give us a call or check our website for folks who are LGBT-friendly and safe. We are working on creating a list so you can ID someone who will best serve you.
