  • Im 13 and wanna run away.

    I wanna run away. My girlfriend says to go to her house if I do but, her parents dont like me. I have no friends and no family I'd be comfortable living with until im within legal age to move out. Please help!

    Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are a really crossroads in your relationship with your girlfriend. It sounds like you are confused as to how to tell her that you are Trans and what to do if she gets mad. We wish we could tell you that we knew the answers to these questions but we don’t. One resource that we can provide for you if you ever need to talk to someone more specifically about Trans issues feel free to give Trans Lifeline a call 1-877-565-8860. Their hotline is staffed by the true experts on transgender experience, transgender people themselves.
    Since you mentioned in you other post about running away we want you to know that, leaving home without parental consent (running away) is not a crime, so the police will not arrest you. If you do leave home without permission your guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. Running away is not a crime it is a status offence (something that only a minor can get in trouble for truancy, buying cigarettes, etc.) this means that if you have any interaction with the police they will simply return you home. On the other hand the people that you are found to be staying with could face legal consequences that vary depending on state. You can find out more about how runaway’s reports are carried out by contacting your local police department. If you would like we could contact your local non-emergency number for you or with you. Just give us a call and one of our trained liners would be happy to assist you.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
