    I love how they talked about how important it is to just listen because most people going through depression or experiencing any sort of mental health, they don’t want someone to fix their problems, they just need someone to listen. Thank you for this! :)

    As a kid who is questioning gender and sexuality (I'm sure as hell not straight), it is great to know that there is a project like this to help people who are struggling with identity. I have a trans and pansexual friend who is called a slut at school because of his identity. I know numerous people, actually, who are bullied for not being straight or for transitioning. This really makes me feel like things will improve for the LGBTQ kids who live in transphobic/homophobic communities like me.

    I've been considering calling a lifeline like Trevor project for a while now, especially cuz about an hour ago I was talking with my best friend and told her I recently attempted suicide and she was really pushing me to either call a lifeline or tell my dad. I'm afraid to tell my dad and afraid hell hear me in the call. Not doing either, atleast not yet. Maybe some day.

    I’m sorry. I don’t get this. There are two genders , right?

    I hope These people see that they “identify” as their gender but not that they are physically that gender.
    If any of y’all are trans... can you explain it to me...

    Right now this is very inspiring to me because I have a crush on one of my friends, (she's a girl) and I don't know how to tell her and everytime someone asks who I have a crush on, I always have to pretend that I'm actually totally straight and I don't know how to tell my friends, or my family and I don't know what to do.

    This brings me back to when I was in school studying to be a social worker and counselor and the roleplay's we did regularly. They were so hard but so informative. It's okay not to know what to do and take a minute to think. Eugene, you did a great job in your first experience. It's always a hard thing to be in a situation with someone who is struggling and not try to do anything and everything to help them fix the situation. It's so helpful just to listen and be there and then after that ask if there's anything else you can do to help them. Bravo!

    I'm really gonna put myself out there. I'm twelve and I'm Demiromantic Pansexual. I live in a really bigoted and homophobic community. I don't have any suicidal thoughts, but I really can't talk to anyone. So my question is: Is the Trevor Project just a suicide prevention hotline or is it simply just talking?

    Eugene really does have a heart of gold no wonder he was drawn to the Trevor Project. All these people needing a place to talk because the world rejects them for the fact they didn't tick all the conformity boxes made by people obsessed with sexuality all the while screeching sexual morals. Kinda says everything doesn't it?😢

    Do you think you'd ever consider putting peoples pronouns in future videos you present? I know this video is a few months old now and you probably won't be checking in, but it would really help normalize how trans and non-binary people share pronouns.

  • Phanic! At the Pity Party

    I'm bi and came out to my mom 2 years ago. She didn't take it well. It hurt really bad to see the person you trusted to so much not accept you for who you are. She's still not comfortable with it, but she's making progress. She apologized for the pain she put me through over those years. It made me cry because God, that's all I wanted ever since I realized I wasn't straight. Having clinical depression and then being LGBT on top of that is insanely hard. I've struggled with suicidal thoughts and self harm for years. But over the course of this past year I have been learning to love myself for who I am and to be comfortable with myself no matter what others think. And here I am, 4 months clean from cutting, an amazing and adorable girlfriend, and an army of incredible supportive people. It's not perfect, but it's better. It gets better. I promise. Thanks for listening to my story, my Instagram is if you need someone to talk to, want to share your story with, or just want a fellow LGBT friend. Love you all guys, gals, and nonbinary pals💕🌈

  • Phanic! At the Pity Party

    Hey trans girls,

    You're looking really fucking beautiful today💕

  • Phanic! At the Pity Party

    Hey trans guys,

    You're looking really fucking handsome today💕

  • Phanic! At the Pity Party

    To all the people who are afraid to come out. To all the people who were ready to end life because of not being accepted. To the people who weren't excepted. To the people who were kicked out or disowned. To the people who were bullied. To the people who were treated differently for who you are. I'm proud of you. Keep being you, because you are fucking amazing exactly as you are. The world is a hateful place full of a lot of spite, but the LGBTQ+ community is full of the most beautiful and accepting people out there and we are all here for each other. You are a beautiful individual and you're doing amazing. Together we can work towards a world with more color, more equality, and more positivity. Keep going, you are loved❤️🌈

    They got to the role play and it got too real. I work with middle schoolers and it made me think about my own students who struggle. I feel so inadequate even though I'm doing my best each day. I'm not trying to whine or get sympathy--I just see how huge a job it is to help kids who are in pain.

    Please, if you need to, contact the trevor project. Back when I was planning one of my suicide attempts, I contacted them. I needed to talk. They listened, talked, joked and made sure I was ok. The trevor project is a wonderful lifeline for anyone and everyone who needs someone. Remember, you will be found. We are here for you, I am here for you. Please

    I am so sad like my eyes are swollen from crying so much because of all the crap I hear from Christians saying that the LGBTQ community is bull because I am also Christian and having other Christians who treat others like that makes me ashamed of my community because just because others are different and just because they don't follow Christian beliefs doesn't mean that you can tell that kind of stuff to their because its like the cycle first we sin then we pray for forgiveness then God forgives us and it just goes round and round because God loves us all equally and I hate how some Christians out there think that LGBTQ people are disgraces to humanity because its even in the BIBLE that says that just because someone doesn't believe in what you believe in doesn't mean you can't still love them they are just as beautiful and kind and sweet and caring as you are. I myself are saying that I love all, atheist, LGBTQ, Christian, etc.. I love all and to all of the LGBTQ community have the courage and just have the courage to come out don't be ashamed of yourself be confident be loving be caring and be the best you can be.

  • Mara Jackson

    I consider myself by sexual. And understanding this concept was very hard for me. I did not just come out to my parents first of all. I knew my dad and step mom would understand but my mother I was unsure 😐. I still don’t know if she cares or not but yea… a little while ago I talked to her about how Christians hate gay,s or the 🏳️‍🌈 community. And I remember that day when my mom told me that in the Bible god says gays are faggots and that homosexuality is a sin. But I soon realized that, yea it sucks but if I don’t wanna listen than I won’t. P.S. I’m atheist so it doesn’t affect me as much but my mother is which makes me wonder sometimes.
    For those of you going through something like this call immediately cause it’s not the way out. It’s ok to not understand and to think that killing your self is the way out but it’s not. Just call them and talk especially if you don’t understand.
    Good luck for our young lgbtq+ community🤗😋

    When I came out to papa (I know I’m late to this story), papa didn’t believe me. He has nothing against anyone; he just felt weird about it. That was a year ago. Now; a few weeks ago; he sat next to me and said “I accept you.” My family just went through an argument and he sat there and said it. I was confused at first and then he said; “I know it’s not a phase, you’re actually attracted to all genders.” I sighed and I said, “But my gender? Do you accept that?” And we talked about 30 minutes just about my gender before he said; “I might not understand but I accept you.” I’m crying.... fuck. Nobody else in my family but my papa and my granny accept it.... my stepma is terrible about it.
