Support for LGBTQ+ young people

Support for LGBTQ+ young people

Toba Tek Singh Some of you may find yourself living in spaces where those are around you are not accepting of your LGBT+ identity or you are unable to be out. This can feel incredibly challenging and unsettling. Some of you may have had to move back home from university, some of you will not be in school which may have been your escape and some of you will not be out and just beginning to explore who you are, but not feeling sure where to turn. This is, of course, going to add to the anxiety and isolation that you may already be experiencing. During this time, it is vital that you keep connected to those who acknowledge, respect and listen to you.
