Having a good LGBT support system as a young queer adult can be incredibly beneficial for mental health and overall wellbeing. It can provide a sense of belonging, validation, and acceptance that may be lacking in other areas of life. Support systems can come in many forms, such as supportive friends or participation in LGBT-affirming communities and organizations. These support systems can offer a safe and inclusive space to discuss important issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, and can provide resources for navigating the challenges of coming out, dating, and building a fulfilling life as an LGBT person. Having a good support system can also help young queer adults build self-esteem and confidence, and can serve as a reminder that they are valued and worthy of love and respect.

I met my support system in High School, where I met people who shared the same struggles as me and we were able to learn and grow from each other.
