Homophobia, Gay-bashing, name calling and bullying force many young people, struggling with their emerging sexual orientation, to live in shame and guilt, unless help is sought. Unfortunately, it is this same shame and guilt which prevents them from seeking support. It is a sad commentary on today's society that doesn't afford these young people, and other adults, the human dignity they deserve just because they are alive.
