Get support for gender and sexual identity from a LGBTQ-friendly hotline in China

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 20 helplines in China that can support you if you relate to the following:

  • Not knowing where to get or how to wear a binder
  • Struggling with being misgendered or wrongly labeled
  • Experiencing homophobia or transphobia from family or friends
  • Dealing with trauma related to your sexuality or gender
  • You aren't sure how to date or flirt with members of the same sex
  • Feeling like your sexuality is different from those around you
  • Fantasising about removing or changing your reproductive/sexual organs
  • 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.

LGBTQ-friendly volunteers and counselors in China are available to help you no matter what you're going through. A huge weight can be lifted off your shoulders when you're given the chance to express your true feelings without any fear of judgement.

If you feel like you might need support with your gender & sexual identity, try reaching out to a hotline in China. It's free and confidential.
