of his mom’s house when he told her he’s gay. He’s 17 years old. He went to live with friends for now, but doesn’t know how long he can stay there. He left without his birth certificate or any other identification. He wants to work, but can’t.
The only thing steady in Robert’s life right now is school. At least he knows he can still go to his school. He heard about a law that helps kids like him to be able to stay in the same school even if he’s moving around.
He has lots of questions like where will I go next? Can I get my birth certificate? What are my options?
