Breaks from school can be challenging for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and other youth (LGBTQ+), especially if your living situation is less than supportive or unsafe. While we hope breaks are fun and relaxing, we know they can also cause stress and anxiety. Our Out of School Survival Kit provides some helpful tips and suggestions on how to take good care of yourself during this time, as well as some resources for when things are tough.
“The summer after my first year of high school I attended LTI, GSAFE’s camp for youth leaders. I hold those four days dear to my heart and firmly believe that they were instrumental in transforming my life.” – Haruka, Former GSAFE Youth Activist
