Switchboard, the LGBT+ Helpline, is taking Pride online for the weekend of 7-9 August. Join us for a series of free online events via YouTube and Zoom which celebrate and uplift our LGBT+ communities.
We’ve put together a pack to help you feel supported, comforted and less alone during this uncertain time. We want to share some tips to help manage anxiety, suggestions on what to do when you’re feeling low, some grounding exercises and a wellness toolbox. It’s all personal and each of us are dealing with different feelings and circumstances – we hope you find something that works for you!
And remember, if you need to talk, we’re here to listen.
Safe Space is Switchboard’s new, UK-wide awareness campaign launched at Pride in London 2019. With recent figures showing a doubling of LGBT+ hate crime in just five years, this initiative will reach those affected by isolation, low representation and hate crime in towns and cities across the UK – and you can help us!
Do you think you can provide calm words when they’re needed most? If so, we’d like to hear from you. Find out more about volunteering with Switchboard here.
Switchboard has been listening to callers since 1974. Help us listen to many more by supporting us here.
Switchboard provides a one-stop listening service for LGBT+ people on the phone, by email and through Instant Messaging. Find out more here.
