Website for Young Adults of Straight Spouses

STANDING TOGETHER

My name is Alyssa, I’m 17 years old and my mother is a Straight Spouse Network support group facilitator in Southern California. I just finished my Girl Scout Gold Award project. The project had to be something that would help the community and have a lasting impact. I decided that I wanted to focus on something that I connected with personally. I decided to build a website for other youths who have one parent who turned out to be gay. I know how going through that process feels. The project helped me explore my own feelings and learn some valuable lessons. I hope that the website I created will provide some clarity and support for others who are going through this difficult time. Please visit: http://standingtogetherintheroughpatches.weebly.com
