LGBT Support

Resources for LGBT Youth.

Life can be lonely and confusing for teenagers who are of a gender or sexual minority, such as those who identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender and those who are questioning their gender or sexual identity.

As always, the counselors at Central York High School are deeply committed to providing support to students on their journey through these teen years.  

Additionally, students are encouraged to consider checking out the Central York Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) during Flex period (on days advertised in Flex Time Manager).
