lgbtqia+ resources

First of all, know that this is a safe space for you to exist, be your authentic self, flourish and thrive.

If you’re struggling or just need some support with LGBTQIA+ issues like coming out, transitioning, unsupportive family, etc, the Trevor Project has great resources available and free counselors for you to chat, call or text with 24/7, 365 days of the year https://www.thetrevorproject.org/get-help/

Their ‘Coming Out Handbook’ in particular, is a great resource and place to start whether you’re just questioning, coming to terms with your identity and coming out to yourself or need guidance to tell friends, family and others https://www.thetrevorproject.org/resources/guide/the-coming-out-handbook/

Me and our community are here for you and to be supportive, but we are not mental health professionals. If your health, safety, life or the life, health or safety of anyone else is in immediate danger, please contact emergency services (call 911 in the US/Canada, 999 in the UK/Ireland, 000 in Australia/NZ) and suggest reaching out to a safe and trusted person in your life like a family member, teacher, counselor, friend or neighbor.
