What Is This?

This is a geographic study of current services for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth in Washington State, including a more detailed look at Thurston County. Conceptually, this study is about family rejection of LGBT youth and LGBT youth migration.

Part of the study is about describing what’s available for LGBT youth, using maps; part of the study is a discussion of why youth need these services. As a result, this site is both informative and argumentative.
