I know I can't be everything for everyone, and sometimes there are things in life that require immediate attention and help. To that end, here is a list of resources for people in the LGBTQQIA+ community:
Crisis Resources for LGBTQQIA People
For crises: https://www.thetrevorproject.org/#sm.001kt94wk8i3d6i10md12t6mh1ege
Trans Lifeline (1-877-565-8860 and translifeline.org) is a nonprofit hotline staffed by transgender people for transgender people currently experiencing a crisis.
National Anti-violence Project from Lambda Legal Defense: https://avp.org/ncavp/
For Loved Ones of LGBTQQIA People
For friends and loved ones of LGBTQ individuals: http://www.pflag.org/
For civil rights defense: https://www.hrw.org/topic/lgbt-rights
As always, if you are right on the edge of acting on suicidal or homicidal thoughts, or you just don't feel like you can manage to stay safe, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital! Your safety is important to me, and to the community. You deserve to live and be safe.
I will definitely add to this as I go along. This is a preliminary list. If you know of any really awesome groups or organizations that deserve mention, please email them to me and I will check them out for inclusion: email@example.com. Thanks in advance.
