How do I tell my parents and friends about my feelings? What things do I have to think about when I’m coming out? I don’t know on what gender I fall in love with? I don’t feel comfortable in the body I was born in. I feel insecure. I want to meet other LGBT+ people, how do I do that? Are you looking for someone who can help you with these questions? Someone who understands you and can help you to figure out how you feel?
