Heartstrong, for GLBT students

HeartStrong is a non sectarian organization established to provide outreach to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and other persons adversely affected by the influence of all denominations of religious educational institutions.

HeartStrong is also committed to educating the public about the persecution of GLBT’s and others at religious educational institutions.

Bravo! Anyway there are about 7.5m students in religious schools in the United States and in most of them suspicion of homosexuality is sufficient to get you expelled. Homosexual students are harassed, persecuted, bullied, often sent off mental institutions, etc... If you are a GLBT student in a religious institution they have an ambassador program to get someone local to help in any sort of crisis. I'd recommend going to their site and contacting them.
