I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

You can meet other people like you in a variety of places. You can meet people at the library, online, at your local grocery store.... anywhere! It is important that if you are meeting someone for the first time, you are welcome to bring a friend to be there for you in case something goes wrong.
When I wanted to meet other people like me, I was always myself around others. If we get along, we might have some interest and become friends. Also, I would look up pages/blogs with the same interests as me. Maybe I could be friends with the owner or find other people who like/follow the page/blog.
If you're one of a kind, it can be the hardest thing to do but sometimes, it can be as simple as hanging out with your own friends or friends of friends. If you're like me and don't have friends, you can always talk to people that are like you online. This site is good for that if you chat within the chatroom.
A good place for LGBT youth to go is a GSA that's held at your school. If your school doesn't have a GSA, there's an organization called Time Out Youth. They have support groups, and health education and even host a gay prom!
