What is the STR8 Email List?

The STR8 List was created to provide a safe space for straight and questioning youth who have friends or family members who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or questioning to talk to each other. The list is a supportive environment catering to the unique needs of straight youth who need to talk to other people in their same situation.

Example situations:

Who can subscribe?

The STR8 List is restricted to youth 25 years or younger. If you are 25 or under, self-identify your sexual orientation as heterosexual or questioning, and have friends or family members who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, or questioning, and would like to talk to other straight young people your age, then this is the place for you!

Need help subscribing?

List Processor ('ListProc') is the software YGS uses to run the YOUTH mailing lists. ListProc provides certain functions (including subscribing) that subscribers may use from time to time, but the actual usage of ListProc may be confusing and burdensome. If you've tried using ListProc but were unsucessful, we have developed a help page to assist you. If this still does not help, do not hesitate to contact list-admin@youth-guard.org and someone will be able to assist you.
