If I Go To a LGBT Drug Rehab Center, Will My Family Know?

Drug and alcohol addiction is a serious problem in the LGBT community, mainly due to all the issues that LGBT people regularly face.

In 1990 Madonna released her single “Vogue”. A window into a microcosm was opened for mainstream society peering at a staple and genius solely invented by the LBGTQ community. 1991’s Jennie Livingston’s documentary film “Paris is Burning” was the first time I witnessed a representation of people I found myself in and as a questioning teen it was…
