We often hear of all the hardships queer people have to face to be able to live as their authentic selves. Closeted queer people have to hide away a large chunk of who they are for a significant period of their lives. Those who are out often face discrimination in schools, workplaces and homes. Trans and non-binary people are constantly misgendered or deadnamed.
While there is a long, long way to go for queer people to be completely accepted and treated as equal, there’s still a lot to celebrate! Finally understanding yourself, finding a place within a community that understands and accepts you – there’s a lot of joy in that! We want to host a support group for queer people to discuss not only the obstacles they face, but also all the milestones they celebrate, with other queer people who truly understand and support you!
