So if you if it takes you a second to kind of say the world, like you start and like you're trying to finish it, that's okay, okay, like if I've a brain part. Yeah, okay, because we're all like mentally ill. So that happens a lot and I fact like severe brain damage. Like, Um, avery, do you want to shot us off?

Sorry, we're not mind readers exactly. That's my issue here. My town, Hose River, who goeses every your house? I couldn't remember who went next. Okay, let's out again. Yawn when? Wait, what, I didn't hear the first dawn. When women do anything? Love it when women. Someone's out, I know, but I love it when women. I love a woman. We really suck at this because we got to say means we do. How Sad Alexa, play carols, whisper. I'm like slowly, not wanting to, like, okay, Oh, so I want to, if you're okay with me. Guys saying this the jigger one. Oh yeah, yeah, so we all go into a hafty subject today. I know, episode seven and we're already making you cry seven weeks. So like, yeah, yeah, that's like, yeah, we've been we've been doing this for a while. So, but we will be talking about what happened if you get kicked out of your house, which is, sadly, something happens to a lot of LGBTEENS. So if this is something that have happened to you or you're scared of most anything like that, and it may be to Greing, this is you're wanting to stop. We're going to wait about a minute or so of just for you to kind of pack it at. Well, thirty seconds. We hope you don't need a minute, but about thirty seconds just for you to get yourself all together. Wait, I'm sorry, Jackson. Did you just turn LGBT TO LGBT LGB TEENS? I did a bit. Okay, thirty seconds to really loved it. Okay. So before we kind of get into the topic, because it is more hefty and with that trigger warning earlier, I'm going to read off a few crisis lines or shelters, mostly just based in Canada.

So first is the Alberta Health Line, which is eight one. Kids help phone is one eight hundred and sixty six two nine seven, four hundred and two one. The Distress Center Calgary is four zero three two, sixty six, four three five seven. The wheatland shelter society is one hundred eighty seven, seven nine three, four six sixty three four. The Capella Center is a woman's only shelter and the that phone number is one eight hundred two, sixty three three, zero four five. Then we have the mustard seed shelter in Calgary, Alberta. Their address is seven zero two five forty four street southeast, the Fort mcmurray Salvation Army Community Services Center in Fort mcmurray, Alberta, which is nine nine one nine McDonald Avenue, as well as the left bridge shelter and Resource Center in Left Bridge, Alberta, eight hundred and two to a avenue north, the Calgary dropping in Rehab Center in Calgary, Alberta, on one GERMOT Baldwin way southeast, as well as the Salvation Army, which has at least fifty locations across Canada and there are are pretty worldwide organization. So if we have any listeners in America or anywhere anywhere else, then you can likely find one. And even if anything in this episode is resonating with you, then you should take the time to look into some of your own local shelters. I was just was at a perfectly said every clap yeah's perspectfully and non sexually. Clap those cheeks. Oh Cheeks, oh my God. Okay, UM, sorry, I make jokes when I talk about heavy stuff, we know, but if believe for anything that you may be picked out, whether the moon, can you speak a little loud of your little quiet on arm, on the recoding? What the fuck it with the walk? We just need to be able to hear you. Okay, okay. Sorry. If you believe for any reason that you may be kicked out, whether that's due to domestic abuse or anything else, like coming out as whatever you came out as, or your parents don't accept you or something else, the most important thing you can do is to be prepared. What we discussed in this topic can also be relevant to having to flee or escape and abuse of household or relationship. Even so, please be open minded and know that we are not advocating running away from home unless absolutely necessary, like if you are in danger. If you do need to leave your home in Hory, pack being sent insentials, money and clothes, as well as any indispencations in case of Emmoency, whether that the drive is licensed, diploma, both certificate passport makes you dressed with the weather, the weather in your area as well. If you're from Canada and it's fall, makes you have a winter coat because you know the snow can come. If you're in somewher hot where rains often, makes you have an umbrella. Just pack for your weather. Enough for one second. If you are of high school age, a lot of high schools do provide winter coats for people who need them. So if that...

...is something that is available to you, you can utilize up. If you don't have access to a winter coat or if you're not living at home and you need supplies, you can always go to your school's resource office. Pack any and makes you pack anything. That is the difference between life and death. If you take medication, makes you grab your medication. They're yeah, and there's like I said before, they are climents that are really stract, like really like it's really hot, it's really cold in Canada, and that's why podcast is based. So make sure you're like a paired for that. If you live in if you live in a pretty steady temperature, just being kit to be careful in case that changes. If you own a call and insurance, take it with you. And if you can't, play a safe play, if you can plan a safe place to stay, like an in or hotel, and they just won't take you or something like that, it is safer in your car then on the street. Also, first, your friend, if they can provide a place to stay for you. Who? Yeah, front, your friend. Yeah, like car should be kind of like after you looked at hotels in friends, other family moments who are support of HMM. Street should be last minute, last, very last. First thing you should try to do is speak with the trusted adult, whether that's a guardian, teacher, counselor family member, or anyone in your supports or circle. If you're religious, you can seek help from a local church or synagogue, and even if you aren't, it's highly likely that any religious organization would offer help. If you don't have access to a religious organization and can't access a trusted adults, your next best bet would be a shelter, library or authorities, as well as a emergency center such as a hospital. Shelters are easy to find and probably your best option. In a worst case scenario, they can be difficult to have situated, depending on the weather, your general well being or your situation. Libraries wouldn't have the best resources, but they are a public service, meaning you can crash there for hours during the day and may even be able to find help. Okay, UM, are taking my boo tattoos. Actually, people are usually the most apprehensive in contacting the authorities, especially with all the controversy surrounding the justice systems, especially climate right now. I know a lot of us do not like cops, but if it comes down to it, like, okay, anyways, have unless you need them. Yeah, have you're literally dying anyways. Don't see a cat as your final waltz. In conclusion, a cap anyways. That being said, it is technically illegal for your parents to kick you out if you are under the age of eighteen, and contacting authorities may be able to help you get back into your home if that is an option for you. This, of course, does come that's just me saying is if they kicked you out. I wouldn't want to say they're facts, but if that is something you want to try and work out, that is always an option. However, this option comes with the risk of going into the system, which has proven to not be the most reliable, but you always have to take your best interest into account. If you don't have all I'm so sorry, guys, it's okay, Darling, to any of these options, your number one focused should be to try and find a place to stay, even if that means calling an act and asked to crash on the couch. If anyone you can think of, including your teacher's friends, acquaintances, doctors and counsel is just give them a call. It's yeah, just try and call somebody,...

...as long as they're not going to abuse you will kick you out as well. Yeah, you know, on the street again should be your very, very last option and the worst case scenario, make sure that you have finances. So that's like what we said that the beginning, about having money packed as one of your essentials. You should apply for any insurance you may be eligible for and determing your financial status. Try to set up accounts and get a trusted adult to help you if you needed someone over eighteen for this process, especially in the rare case that you would have to freeze your accounts. However, I do believe that you can open your own bank account at sixteen. Yes, you can. I believe so as well. Cool, because my savings account opened when I turned sixteen. So I just yeah, I would like to point that out. Very Nice, fair, Nice. Yes, UM, social bank is not the most minor friendly. I would go with a different one. I found some was Canada's pretty nice, but no t no shade. But Scotia Bank is my bank and they wouldn't let me open a savings account until this year. So really, yeah, it's wild. I decided to look this up because I know so it wasn't a thing. So in United States as of twenty seventeen, this United States up to one point six million young people all experience homelessness in United States every year and forty percent of them identify as LGBT. Go I can't find ill to bete rate for Canada, but it's about fortyzero youth in Canada who are considered homeless. That's so. That doesn't just have to do with LGBT or like. No, I would be being kicked up for being lgbt. MMM, but it's just it's just about that. Anyway, I looked it up. I looked up I got to check the recency of this one. It doesn't say but it looks pretty recent, so I looked up a better website for it's gone from fortyzero percent a homeless to one hundred thou fifty. Yeah, one Hundredzero, just a bit over that. Twenty five to forty percent of them identify as LGBT, and then it goes into some of the Toronto ones. Wow, so it this is some the reason we talk about this is because it does affect people a lot. It affects the LGBT, lgbt community a lot, and I don't think many of us understand that. I I lone this because of I was terrified it might happen at my house. But it's a scary thing and if you're worried about this or you know a friend who maybe experience in this, try to help them out because, yeah, teenager being anyone being homeless is very like. It's it's a struggle, especially in climates that aren't warm. It's exactly not so it's such an so awful Um. Also, something I would like to add to reaching out to churches and everything. If you have access to Internet and Um, like a device that you can use the Internet on you can go to your public library and you can use the computers there to search this up, but you can look for LGBT friendly churches near you in your city. Google LGBT friendly churches and your city's name and their locations and how to get there, so that can help. Yeah, that was I believe you can also print at libraries, so, if possible, you can try and print out a road map so that you can get there safely. Gosh, de Hyeres really are the backbone of society bys and I believe if you're a minor, a library card in Calgary...

...is free. Once again, libraries backbones saciet. A lot of this is from Calgary because, again, two of our people live in the CAGARY. But make sure to Google this stuff in your own area, like right now, I just lost my thing. Oh No, one once. Once you're listening to this, or even now if you really wanted to, like, I'd rather you just look it up, look up safe places for you to go, check with a friendly hey, someone, would happened? Can I s crash your house? Tab a support system, because, sadly, this is something that is very true and it's something that what we'll trying to fix is not going to be fixed in a night, and you should be prepared in case this happens, and especially if you are planning on coming out soon. I would set up a network of people. Oh exactly, and make sure you send prior like have a code yes, so that your parents can't help that you're like planning to leave. I'm going to say I think that this was a really important episode that we did now, especially with the politics going on in America, which I really I I don't want to get political on here, but it's a scary time and I feel like if we were ever going to do an episode on this topic, that this would be a good time one. Now this will get posted for a couple of weeks, but yeah, we don't know. So again, we do PRERECD so dos an issue, you don't go right away. That's why this is October seven, but we are recording. It is a scary time right now, especially in America. Don't know what it's going to be like, and the reason why I also want to talk about is Canada follows America very much, so because of trade and Aighbors, and so if America against going in a direction, Canada may have to follow. So we want our Canadian and American people to be prepared for this and I want people who don't live in very accepting countries to also be prepared for this. I A lot of them on like yeah, it's just be ready to all we can really say and hopefull the best. I hate to say this, but if you're in a crisis with US stuff and you try to message uch, message outs, we can do our best, but your best bet to actually get help is not to message influencers or any social media person, unless they are like an actual organization. Yeah, we're just we're just three kids, you know, US helping you was going to be like hey, you should call this number and give you the addresses. However, we will be posting resources on our instagram and our twitter and our Tumbler and Bo atreon. Yes, I will be posting all of that, and I will also put these resources up on our website as well. Yes, I believe all website will always have if you ever don't know where to find our resources, like, because I'm we should have most of our resources, like team outlines and stuff, on our website. Yeah, and those will stay well, like our instagram and twitter may flux. All of the information will be on the website. So if you ever really need at all, website can do our best to help. Absolutely and will. Yeah, it'll hopefully, it will hopefully be helpful. But I think that's all for today. Tonight definitely a shorter episode. But no, this is actually about average. Oh yes, nice, show up, because we will. I think it's because this is something we really, we all really...

...want to talk about, because it's something that is sad but true and important. Yeah, but and it's everyone seems like tired. Yeah, I think today it was a lot, but that is our episode for today. Next week, when you come back to check his out, it will be on lesbians, the female gays. We Love Them. That is it for today. I'll reminder that you are valid. We didn't talk about so your ballot as fuck. We should value this. You guys are like, sorry, I forgot our catchphraser a second, but your Billat is wook, is whook. I'm not making that sound a good morning, good afternoon, good night, good evening, wherever time it is what you are and we'll see you have a good life. And if you decide not to watch the next episode, we hope you enjoy whatever you do for the rest of your life. We love you. We love you all our steps. I'm listeners. Yeah, we want to say we do have some on. This snows on our first episode starts. That makes me so happy. Of course it says hope you have a good week. By Hi.
