It is incredibly hurtful when our loved ones don't support us. Their non-support can come in many different forms.

****HELP!**** I have an issue. I can’t tell if this guy in my class is gay. He acts gay and throws hints and clues at me, but it’s so confusing. My heart literally does flips for him and I don’t know what to do. The other day in class, he was giving me...Donavon, 14, GreenbackTN
