The Courage Game

12year

Bullies are predators who carefully analyze potential targets.
~ Margaret R. Kohut

4902982345293824The Courage Game, created to support gay youth and rebuke bullying, was one of the feel-good stories of the year. It sprang from the relationship between former pro lacrosse player Andrew Goldstein and 12-year-old Braeden Lange, a gay lacrosse player who contemplated suicide until he found acceptance.

Now Lange and his parents, Mandy and Scott, are trying to lacrosse-emoticonhelp LGBT homeless youth in the Philadelphia area by building a home for them, called the Courage Home. Braeden explained the need for such a home in an email to me:

“I think the Courage Home is so important because over 40% of homeless youth are LGBT and I think that is a big problem. This is, because sometimes, when kids come out, they don’t get supported the way I did and they eventually either get kicked out of their homes, or they choose to leave because of how hard it is.

larcross“A lot of the time when LGBT teens try to stay in a homeless shelter, they experience bullying and don’t get the proper support they need. So if we were to make a homeless shelter for all LGBT youth, it would be a  much more supportive environment than normal homeless shelters. Me and my mom have been working really hard on this but we need all the support we can get because this will actually save lives.”

“We need all the support we can get because this will actually save lives” ~ Braeden Lange

These are kids who have been rejected by their families and they need to be in a space that will fill in where they were failed.

The Courage Home would provide emergency and transitional housing and access to all the medical and mental health they need in addition to job or school opportunities. There would be community support and nurturing that would enable them to accept themselves for who they are.”
