While all of your friends and family can provide support, feeling part of the LGBTIQA+ community can provide solidarity and sense of belonging. While everyone’s situation is different, there are a couple of things you can do to find a supportive community where you can be you.
It’s really important to surround yourself with a strong community that supports you regardless of your gender or sexuality. These are the people who respect your sexuality, support your personal journey, and offer empathy and advice. They’ll be the people who you can trust and turn to for support when you’re struggling.
