Kyra Phillips’ Daring Report on Queer Teens Who Don’t Hate Themselves

Is this Kyra Phillips’ mea culpa for taking part in spreading Richard Cohen’s rhetoric? The True Colors program in Hartford, Connecticut, wears many hats: social services programs for youth; conference organizer; counselor training; safe schools facilitator. Founded in 1992, it’s an organization dedicated to the exact opposite of people like Cohen — not making young LGBTs hate themselves.

      Please, don’t fill these comments with negativity like you do every other article Queerty-goers. For once, somebody is doing something right.

      This woman is amazing. She is really doing great things and I hope she inspires others to do the same.

      Excellent report Kyra. Almost flawless. In future reports, please avoid using the outdated, inaccurate term “sexual preference”. Other than that, spot on! Thank you.

      As someone who has been a part of True Colors events, and who has met Kamora firsthand, I can tell you that she is a beautifully amazing woman who is changing the lives of young people in that area.

      What can we do to get sister programs like this set up through out the country for our youth? Anyone have any ideas?
