    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us, it sounds like you are dealing with a lot right now. We are sorry that you are experiencing abuse at home; no one deserves to be treated that way. It is understandable given the circumstances that you feel like running away.

    Have you thought about what changes you would like to have made? Sometimes reaching out to someone in your life who you trust can be a good way to get the support that you are looking for. If you are interested in getting support with coming out or discussing your feelings regarding your sexuality, there is a GLBT National Hotline (1-888-843-4564) that could offer you assistance. There are also other resources that could be of help to you, depending on what you would like to focus on and your location. We would like to find help for you.
