Kyra shares their story about having a safe space to be your full and true self. For many young people, it can be a really challenging experience figuring out who you are. This can mean exploring your gender identity and sexuality, which can lead to and uncomfortable feelings. “It’s so important to seek help because no one should have to go through these kinds of overwhelming feelings by themselves.” For Kyra, coming out was really important. “It was the best thing I’ve ever done!” But it wasn’t easy. Which is why it’s important to know that you’re not alone and that there’s a strong LGBTIQA+ community to embrace and support you. headspace has helped thousands of young people from the LGBTIQA+ community get the support they need.
