Another survey that may not surprise anyone in this community: Increased Health Risks for Gay Teens . "High school students who identify as being gay, lesbian, or bisexual are more likely than heterosexual students to smoke, drink alcohol, use drugs, and take part in violent and suicidal behaviors, a CDC survey shows."

What do you think we can do better to support GLBT teens? If you are/were a GLBT teen, what do you wish had been available for you?
