Jeff's Support/Resource Page

It was tough growing up in Toronto. I am now a peer support volunteer at the LGBYL where young people call in for support.

Hi there and welcome! Glad you could take time to visit. The main reason I put together this page was to gather the resources I thought were very helpful when I needed questions answered.

Thank you for those who have written in with questions. I apologize for the delay for I have been having problems with my e-mail. I will get to you as soon as possible.
NOTE: My recent e-mail problems have been fixed, so for those who have sent e-mail but have not heard from me, (I have not been ignoring,) I actually didn't receive anything!
