If you’re in crisis, help is available. Visit AFSP.org for a list of 24/7 LGBTQIA+ crisis support hotlines (text, call, and chat options). We especially want to highlight Trans Lifeline, a trans-led hotline and microgrants nonprofit. Call (877) 565-8860 in the US or (877) 330-6366 in Canada to speak with a trans/nonbinary peer operator. Calls are anonymous, and they will never contact police or EMS without your consent.
Thanks to The Taxpayers for the use of their song Everything is Awful!
