Mental Health

Homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, heterosexism, racism, bullying, hate crime violence… the adversity we face as queer and trans people can be frustrating, exhausting and depressing.  If it ever starts to feel too overwhelming it is important to reach out and connect with people who can help keep you safe.  If you or someone you know is really down or considering suicide – even if you’re not sure – make a call!  Resources and support are out there.
