Our contributors share what they want decision makers to understand about LGBTQIA+ rights in the United States. Robert shared, "I've always believed that this is a country where people can become anyone they want. That doesn't always mean some financial or career status. For many, it's about discovering and being their true self. The stress and fear put upon LGBTQIA+ young people can kill them by driving them to take their own lives. Ultimately, these are someone's children, someone's brother or sister. Their lives have meaning." Read more here:

Creating a supportive environment where open communication is encouraged ensures we can all serve our community effectively.

“While I have many tools to help me through these moments, my most useful one is not to cope at all. Sometimes my mind and body just need everything to stop. But when I do that, I accept that the issues I'm hiding from still await me. So, I'm mindful that the respite I will take from the pressures of my life will come with a deadline.”
