CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – For anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgendered or questioning their gender identity, coming out can be difficult. And learning to live with a new gender identity can be a challenge.

While coming out is rarely an easy decision, it can be made harder when you are young, and emotional health factors in.

On 22News InFocus we discussed mental wellness issues around gender identity and a new support program in our region for LGBTQ+ youth.
