Sources of personal support, guidance and legal advice for responding to homophobic, biphobic and transphobic harassment.

“My boss repeatedly says homophobic comments about gay people at work. No one in the office is homosexual… is this then still a form of homophobic harassment? Should I report it?”

Homophobia has many negative effects upon individuals

Homophobic, biphobic and transphobic harassment can cause mild to severe depression, self-loathing and anxiety. It can lead to rejection by family and friends, and exclusion from workplaces, venues or social groups. Homophobia makes it difficult for people to accept and express their sexual identity (‘coming out’) and is the leading cause for the higher rate of suicide for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer people compared to the overall population.
