Gay Youth Center

Well, Gay Center, actually, but they've got a youth drop-in place, according to their website. I'm thinking of going there tomorrow morning. It's only a short subway ride away, and my mom will probably buy the "going for a long walk on the lakefront" excuse, or maybe I could bike over there and just label it as a bike ride. Problem is, I can't figure out when the hell they open, and I'd feel like an idiot if I got there and the place was closed. But hey, most places are open by like 10:30 / 11, right? Right. I'm nervous. Even if I successfully get out of the house, with an excuse that would let me be gone for a while, this is a huge step for me. I'm sort of the staple lesbian in our group, everyone else is (at least supposedly) straight. So, I've never really known people in real life who are lesbian or gay. I'm still going to go though. I think this is an experience I have to have, y'know?

do they have a number? never

do they have a number? never fails to call and ask, i'm sure they'd be happy to help you in anyway they can.

so for those of you falling in love
keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right
throw yourself in the midst of danger
and keep one eye open at night.
