LGBTQ youth are not inherently prone to suicide risk because of their sexual orientation or gender identity but rather placed at higher risk because of how they are mistreated and stigmatized in society.
The Trevor Project acknowledges that every LGBTQ young person’s situation and environment is different. We want to share some tips to help LGBTQ youth navigate personal safety while channeling their energy into meaningful action online or in person.
For some of us, accessing the supportive and fabulous communities we deserve can be hard to do offline. That’s why Instagram can be a great place to engage with LGBTQ inclusive and life affirming content and communities.
