There can be times when using the phone to find support might not feel safe or comfortable.
Because of that, we provide an anonymous and confidential space online. Here you can connect with a trained LGBTQIA+ peer support volunteer to have a web-based conversation. We discuss many different issues and concerns including, but not limited to, coming out issues, gender and/or sexuality identities, relationship concerns, bullying, workplace issues, HIV/AIDS anxiety, safer-sex information, suicide, and much more.
Along with peer support, listening, and affirmation, our volunteers can access the largest LGBTQIA+ resource database of its kind in the world (www.LGBTnearMe.org) to provide additional resources.
Hotline calls can be answered from the United States and Canada, while online chats are available from anywhere in the world. As long as you have access to our website and are able to have a conversation in English, we are there for you.
"It's not safe to talk out loud about this stuff at home, my mom is always listening.
I'm so glad that I can just type it out!"
