'I'm stuck in isolation with my homophobic parents' - www.bbc.com

Excerpts from article:

...With the UK on coronavirus lockdown, some young people have been forced to isolate alongside parents who don't accept their sexuality.

...Lucy Bowyer, director of services at akt, which supports homeless young people in the LGBT community, says the charity is currently supporting between 120 and 130 young people.

..."Over the last few weeks we have been receiving an especially high volume of referrals from young people," she says.

..."Our services team is adapting to the current climate by providing e-mentoring services, live chats and online hubs to ensure we are there when young people need us."

...Paul Martin, chief executive of LGBT Foundation, says some young people currently feel "They have nobody to turn to".
