Power On youth access initiative launches for LGBTQ teens

Straight But Not Narrow, The Trevor Project and Human I-T have announced a joint initiative to provide LGBTQ youth access to computers and online resources. Entitled "Power On", the initiative will run until LGBT Spirit Day on October 17, with the organizations encouraging donations of laptops, tablets and smartphones for distribution to LGBTQ resources centers throughout the US. The aim of the project is to provide youth with access to the Internet for the purpose of being more readily connected to peer support regarding sexual and gender identities. Donated devices will be refurbished by Human I-T.
