You have the right to be yourself! Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth shouldn’t have to fear going to school, using a public restroom, or standing up for their rights with government officials or police. Young people should have the freedom to be open (or not) about their identity and beliefs in schools, at college, in government facilities, and in public. The ACLU LGBT Project helps protect young people's right to express themselves, start gay-straight alliance clubs, have their gender identity respected, and be taught in a safe environment.

If you've been discriminated against based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status, the ACLU wants to hear about it.
