Gender and sexual identity hotlines are available in Austria

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 9 hotlines in Austria that can help you with the following and more:

  • Struggling with being misgendered or wrongly labeled
  • Wanting to change your physical appearance
  • Experiencing homophobia or transphobia from family or friends
  • Feeling sexually attracted to people of the same gender as you
  • Feeling like your sexuality is different from those around you
  • Dealing with trauma related to your sexuality or gender
  • A sense of wrongness about the gender you were assigned at birth
  • Feeling constricted by gender binaries

Experiencing rejection as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender person is extremely painful. You deserve to be accepted and loved for who you are. When you’re not, it can take a serious toll on your mental health. If you feel confused, lonely, and even suicidal, your feelings are valid.

LGBTQ-friendly volunteers and counselors in Austria 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 Austria. It's free and confidential.
