What people are saying

Talking with the Hetrick-Martin staff was the first time I felt comfortable about my sexuality and myself. I call this moment the opening of my closet, coming out to myself. I now work for The Lesbian and Gay Community Services Center of Orange County, California, coordinating a drop-in center targeting at-risk youth. Knowing I could be the first person who makes a youth feel comfortable about their sexuality or gender identity is what makes my job worthwhile. Thank you for everything you have done for me
