The last thing you expected was to be in a cabin, with Dean hovering over you. It was supposed to be a simple salt and burn, but it turned out to be more. Sam told you about this place to stay in, until both of you figured out exactly what exactly was going on. Plus the last sign you seen said ‘Welcome To Indiana’. The bunker was obviously out of the question.
Joseph Fink, a writer for the popular LGBT-friendly podcast Welcome to Night Vale, tweeted Tuesday that, despite the actions of Indiana’s government, a scheduled live recording would go on. Fink said that doing otherwise would
hurt the people being targeted by the unfair legislation. Many would agree with him. There are other ways to fight back.
Regardless of what happens in the state government, LGBT youth in Indiana need resources and support. Here are some fantastic LGBT-focused resources in Indiana that you should know about:
1. Indiana Youth Group Located in Indianapolis, the Indiana Youth Group offers programs, support services and activities for LGBTQ youth ages 12-20. Groups like Queer Youth of Color, Bi/Pan/Poly and Gender Variant meet at least monthly and, if you’re the creative type, the center hosts open mics and even cooking groups! Facebook and Twitter
2. GLBT Resource Center of Michiana Lead by trans 100 honoree Meghan Buell, this center serves the area of Northern Indiana and SW Michigan and offers support groups for LGBT youth. Drop in hours are staffed by volunteers who can help you access resources and are available 3 times a week. Facebook

SO I WAS WALKING TO CLASS AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE STARTED SCREAMING AND RAN OUTSIDE. SO OF COURSE I WENT OUT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED AND APPARENTLY A DEER JUST DECIDED TO RUN THROUGH THE GLASS DOOR BY THE POOL. LIKE IT JUST FUCKING JUMPED THROUGH IT AND BROKE THROUGH AND WAS JUST LAYING THERE TWITCHING. WELCOME TO INDIANA.
