The Make It Safe Project
Many young lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) teens only hear the word "gay" when it is used to mean "bad," as in the phrase, "That's so gay." Schools rarely have books about being LGBT and most health curricula overlook LGBT relationships, sending a message to their LGBT students that they are not worth as much as their straight peers. As a result, startling numbers of LGBT teens have been bullied to the point where they have taken their own lives.
The Make It Safe Project donates books about sexual orientation and gender expression to schools and youth homeless shelters that lack the resources to keep their teens safe by donating books and supporting the develop of gay-straight alliances.
