Please note: Our Stories and Links pages contain links to some sites and some stories
which may include, or link to, things that may be considered by some to be "adult
content." We believe that the content we link to has far greater potential for benefit
than for detriment. Teens know how to search for porn all around the Internet. Aiding
that quest is not our purpose.
Welcome, moms and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other adults.

Fathers of boys, and indeed all men and boys, please click here and read an
important essay on the ability (or lack thereof) to express emotions. Fathers have

DIVORCE: We're realizing that many teens -- especially GLBT teens -- whose
parents are getting (or have gotten) a divorce are experiencing the same feelings
that Trey of our crew did when his parents decided to divorce less than a year
after Trey had come out to them. They feel it's their fault. If you're a parent in
that situation, please read these articles to help you understand what your kids are
going through: When Parents Divorce at Teen Talk, Dealing With Divorce at
TeensHealth, and Your Parents' Divorce at the UIUC Counseling Center.
The non-fiction section of PiNKBOOKS includes several important books for parents
of gay and lesbian teens. Some of them were written by parents of gay kids.
