About Us

It's been our mission from the beginning of offer these important things for those in need:

  • All LGBTQIA+ peer-support

  • A safe space

  • Respect to those who seek our help

  • Acceptance and affirmation

  • Supportive listening, not advice

  • Answers to factual questions

  • Resources locally, nationally, and internationally


We are here to serve and uplift the community and
to provide the
support & respect
our community deserves.

We do this every day we are open through our hotlines, online chat programs, email services, and publicly accessible online database of resources.

Our services are always free and confidential.

More than 3 in 5 transgender Americans faced discrimination in the past year.

More than half of LGBTQ Americans reported having to hide their relationships to avoid discrimination.

Only 1 in 3 LGBTQ youth found their home-life was affirming.

The world outside can be hard, but you deserve respect and a safe space to talk about the concerns you may be facing.

Here you can talk with our all-LGBTQIA+ volunteers, find resources, and community to empower you on your journey forward.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) National Help Center, founded in 1996, is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides vital peer support, community connections, and resource information. Our services focus on sexual orientation and/or gender identity and expression. We are the oldest and most comprehensive national organization of its type and scope in the United States, providing critically needed services regardless of age or geographic location.


We care deeply about confidentiality.  We understand that what is discussed with us is private, which is why we make the promise that your conversations

are not shared with any outside party.


 Calls and chats are not recorded.  

We help youth and adults with coming-out issues, safer-sex information, school bullying, family concerns, relationship problems, and a lot more. The people who turn to us for help often live in rural and conservative parts of the country and are frequently feeling severely isolated, closeted and despairing, with literally no one else safe to talk to.
