More than ever, there is increased acceptance within society of people who decide to live their lives, identify with or express themselves in ways that aren’t traditionally the norm. But, it is still such a difficult journey for so many.
It’s is a difficult enough decision for the individual, which is further compounded by the difficulties others have with accepting their change. Society and certain segments of it in particular still have a long way to go towards those who identify as LGBT.
One of the hardest things to cope with is “coming out of the closet” to family, friends and colleagues. Being concerned and afraid of how others might react to their coming out can take a huge toll on the individual. Many have such difficulties conveying their new lifestyle and choices that it leads to feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety.
Support is available for individuals, those that care for them and their friends and employers.
Today we are pleased to share resources for those lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transexual friends coming out. They deserve support to help protect their mental health and to prevent feelings of isolation.
