Get help from a LGBTQ-friendly hotline in Benin

If you’re unsure whether you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, you’re not alone. It’s normal to question your sexual and gender identity. Whether you're questioning and need support, or you’re confident in your identity but you're experiencing other issues, there are 1 hotlines in Benin that can help you with the following and more:

  • Feelings of anxiety about not being accepted for who you really are
  • Experiencing homophobia or transphobia from family or friends
  • Feeling like how you are on the outside doesn't represent who you are on the inside
  • Feeling like your sexuality is different from those around you
  • Feeling like there's something wrong with you for not having any sexual desires
  • Feeling sexually attracted to people of the same gender as you
  • Wanting gender-affirming hormone supplements or surgery
  • Feeling constrained by gender norms

As someone who identifies as LGBTQ, or as someone who is questioning their gender or sexual identity, you may feel isolated. Unfortunately, there are still people out there who are homophobic and transphobic. Worrying about social rejection can make it hard to express your true self with pride.

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.

If you are ready to talk to someone about your gender & sexual identity, you can contact a hotline in Benin for free and confidential support.
