LGBTQ+ Helpline: LGBTQ+ Support

LGBTQ+ Helpline

LGBTQ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer, or questioning. These terms are used to describe a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. The LGBTQ+ community is diverse with many organizations supporting individual groups. LGBTQ+ caregivers make up 9% of Americans at a slightly higher rate than their non-LGBTQ+ peers. 

Seeking out an LGBTQ+ helpline can be essential in managing your or your loved one's mental health or physical condition. However, many find this to be a challenging step to take. But you are not alone and there is plenty of help available. The ExtendaTouch community will enable you to connect with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges. ExtendaTouch is completely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of the LGBTQ+ community. 

How can ExtendaTouch's LGBTQ+ helpline help me?

My brother came out to me 8 years ago. I was the first person he told. I love my brother and helped him feel comfortable being his genuine self. Through this experience I have become a fierce advocate of the LGBTQ+ community. Because of my personal experiences, I would be honored to offer my support to those needing guidance, a place to voice frustrations, or validation.

I have been involved with the LGBTQ+ community for many years and can help anyone with a question or a need. Please feel free to reach out to me.
I would like to provide appropriate support for those with sexual and gender differences as that intersects with physical, mental and cognitive disabilities.
