An LGBT book project based in California is headed by 14-year-old Amelia Roskin-Frazeel.

The Make It Safe Project donates books about sexual orientation and gender identity to K-12 schools, school Gay-Straight Alliance clubs, and LGBT-inclusive youth homeless shelters which would otherwise do without.

“Many young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens only hear the word 'gay' when it is used to mean 'bad,' as in the phrase, 'That's so gay,'” the group said at its website. “Schools rarely have books about being LGBT and most health curricula overlook LGBT relationships, sending a message to their LGBT students that they are not worth as much as their straight peers. As a result, startling numbers of LGBT teens have been bullied to the point where they have taken their own lives.”

Roskin-Frazeel founded her school's Gay-Straight Alliance, The Rainbow Connection, after she decided to stop arguing for gay rights and begin arguing for her rights.

She came out to family and friends at the age of 12.

“I interjected when I heard people use homophobic slurs,” she wrote in a post. “Most importantly, I was honest when people asked if I was a lesbian. I became the first openly gay kid in my school, and I am proud of it.”
