Help

This started off as a place to put links pertaining to abuse and domestic violence. My novella Amor Prohibido touched lightly on the subject of same-sex domestic violence, which is a subject that I have a some personal experience with. And if you or someone you know is being hurt, don’t think that sticking around in the name of love or guilt is the way to go. Please get help.

I’ve expanded the list to include many other LGBT-related resources as well. I hope you find them helpful:
