BROOKLYN - A nonprofit organization has launched a new campaign in an effort to teach parents to be supportive when their children reveal alternative sexual orientations.
According to CAMBA, many teenagers in Brooklyn are homeless because they do not have support from their parents because of their lifestyle choices.
CAMBA is a group that supports younger members of the LGBT community and those with AIDS. Their new ad campaign promotes Project ALY, which stands for “Accept LGBT Youth.”Their website includes resources for parents of teens who have recently come out.
The campaign runs until the end of the month,but CAMBA officials say education and support for parents through Project ALY will continue.
