I'm a lesbian and I'm 15. I'm out to a handful of people(all my close friends know and a few other people know out of pure fluke). But the thing is, I don't know any other gay people my age. I have no oppurtunity to meet people so I have to watch all my friends get with someone and I have to content myself with vivid fantasies involving my babe of a teacher(heeheeeheeeheee). I'm in ireland so to be qite honest coming out to a lot of people isn't good when u go to a catholic all girls school. Does anyone know of any Irish websites for gay teens or places to go?Please I need to meet other people. I'm going insane!!!!!

Thank u

Hi Slayer_gurl,

Sounds like a GLBT youth group could be good for you, hm?
A quick little google search came up with http://www.iglyo.org/ (the international glbt youth organisation) which listed these places in Ireland; I'd recommend that you check your local yellow pages/white pages for more details (phone numbers etc.)

quote:
Ireland

Lesbian and Gay Resource Group
7/8 Augstine St.
Cork

The other Place
8 South main street
Cork


I also found these resources in Cork through the Cork Universtiy College GLBT group Oasis http://www.ucc.ie/ucc/socs/oasis/

quote:

cork lesbian line - 0214254710 runs from 8-10pm every thursday

cork's lesbian centre drop-in also on thursdays from 8pm


Also find this number, not sure whether it's the same offer as above, just an older number

quote:
Telephone 021 271087
Lesbian Information Help-line. The line is open Thursdays 8-10pm

Also check out this great list of Cork queer resources!
http://www.ucc.ie/ucc/socs/oasis/contact.htm

It lists a youth group in Cork, too!

quote:
'Tar Amach' Youth Group (under 19 years),
The Other Side, 8 South Main Street, Cork (021-278470)
contact hiker@tinet.ie

Also take a look at this link collection for GLBT websites in Ireland http://www.renttecca.com/linx.html

So just check all this out, be brave and call the local info services and ask about a GLBT youth group! I am sure they'll be very glad to help you!

Good luck!

No worries, Slayer_gurl, pleasure to be of help.
Know what? We really care. Might sound kitschy or clishéish, but we're (most of the time) one big happy family here at Scarleteen, and so many Scarleteeners have been where you are now (sometimes feeling like the only queer in their school, city, country) - and hey, we're here to show you that you aren't.

A belated Welcome to the Boards, btw! Have you worked up some strentgh to grab the phone and call the youth group yet/walk into the gay bookshop or cafe in town? Keep us posted! We're all curious as to how it all works out.

You'll do it gal!
