Struggling with your gender and sexual identity? Get support from a LGBTQ-friendly hotline in Cook Islands

If you identify as LGBTQ or if you’re undecided about your gender or sexual identity, you may be more prone to depression and mental health problems. This is especially true if you experience discrimination, bullying, and rejection. If you struggle with any of the following, reach to a hotline in Cook Islands – 2 are available:

  • Not wanting to put a label on your gender or sexuality
  • Feeling depressed as a result of struggling with your sexuality or gender identity
  • You aren't sure how to date or flirt with members of the same sex
  • Feeling like how you are on the outside doesn't represent who you are on the inside
  • Wanting to come out but not knowing how
  • Feeling isolated from your family friends because of how you identify
  • Feeling guilt around wanting to express who you truly are
  • Wanting to change your physical appearance

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.

Figuring out your sexual and gender identity can be hard and overwhelming if you're dealing with it on your own. Fortunately, there are LGBTQ-friendly volunteers and counselors in Cook Islands who can act as your allies and offer you the support that you need.

Consider contacting a hotline in Cook Islands right away for free, private help with gender & sexual identity.
