WHERE TO GET HELP?
HOW TO REACT AND HELP ?
If you are in immediate danger, please reach out to friends, support groups, and LGBTQ+ organizations for help.
If you cannot stay safely at home, consider finding temporary housing through trusted friends or local resources. Your well-being and safety are the top priority, so make sure you have a support system in place to help you through this difficult time.
It is possible that the violence you receive from your loved ones is temporary. Like everyone else, they may have internalized stereotypes and have representations that can explain, but not excuse, their reaction. By being patient and honest, by explaining your feelings and experiences, you can try to establish open communication to help your loved ones assimilate and accept this information that is new to them. Remember that the most important thing is to first protect and take care of yourself.
If you experience discrimination at school or work, it's important to speak up and report it to the appropriate authorities. This can include school administrators, HR departments, or legal services. Additionally, seek out support from friends, family, or mental health professionals to cope with the emotional impact of discrimination.
Remember, everyone has the right to feel safe and accepted in their learning or work environment, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. By advocating for inclusive policies and speaking out against discrimination, we can work towards a more accepting and equal society for all.
