'Magic City Acceptance': New project seeks to help Alabama's LGBT youth

 Rejection by family. Bullying. Dropping out of school. Substance abuse. Suicide.

Studies show those risks imperil young lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender people at a greater rate nationwide than their young straight counterparts.

A new initiative operated by Birmingham AIDS Outreach this week received a $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham to help LGBT youth in the metro area avoid those problems. The effort has also raised $62,000 from other sources since May 2012.

Gateway is pleased to be a part of this wonderful outreach program!  To read the full article on Al.com, click here!
