Chad Peevy knew early on that he didn't fit in. Not in his strict, Fundamentalist home. Not in his rural Arkansas town.
Chad was gay, and had no one he could safely tell, and knew no one else like him. The result were feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and anxiety.
"Run away," he was encouraged by an educator at his school.
And eventually, he did.
Today, Chad is the founder of businesses, non-profits, and a popular speaker, and the author of Break & Untangle: Discover the Freedom to Be You Despite the Inherited Mindsets Holding You Back.
You will learn:
* Being rejected by family and the community can result in higher rates of mental health concerns and even suicidality in LGBTQIA youth.
* There is hope and forgiveness if there is a willingness to reunite when families don't understand how to support their child as they come. Chad gives an example of what is needed.
* Organizations and advocates like Chad that give emotional support and information can make the difference between life and death for LGBTQIA.
