Get help from a LGBTQ-friendly hotline in Australia

Many people struggle with being confident in their sexual and gender identity. It can be hard to grapple with this because of the discrimination many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people still face today. Fortunately, there are 11 helplines in Australia that can support you if you relate to the following:

  • Wanting to express your gender differently
  • Not knowing where to get or how to wear a binder
  • Feeling like your sexuality is different from those around you
  • Dealing with trauma related to your sexuality or gender
  • Being bullied, discriminated against or excluded because of how you identify
  • Anxiety around coming out to others
  • Wanting to change your physical appearance
  • Feeling constrained by gender norms

It’s normal to feel confused and alone when you’re trying to figure out your gender identity and sexual orientation. If it feels like you can’t come out and you’re scared to show the world who you really are, your mental health can take a serious knock. You deserve to be LGBTQ and proud.

If you're experiencing problems because you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, help is available in Australia. You can reach out at any time and get connected to a caring LGBTQ-friendly volunteer or counselor. Helpline listeners will offer you respectful, affirming care no matter what you're going through.

For free and confidential support with gender & sexual identity, consider contacting a hotline in Australia today.
