Group hopes to promote change, provide resources for LGBT communities in New Orleans
Sebastian Rey showed up at the doors of the LGBT Center of New Orleans when he was 13 years old. Feeling like he had nowhere to go, no place where he felt accepted, no one who understood him, the teenager knew he had finally found a home.
