We were talking about suicide prevention and I said "There is also a good center and helpline called The Trevor Project, it focuses on LGBT+ and questioning youth under 25 and offers resources to parents and educators to make a safe, accepting, and inclusive environment for youth. The hotline is open 24/7, they have other things called TrevorText which is a confidential texting service, TrevorChat, and TrevorSpace which allows people from ages 13-24 friends and LGBT+ allies to connect and find resources in their communities.
I know we stopped talking about that stuff for the class, but this took forever to type, sorry.
I just felt this was important" and my teacher says "That is very important *dEaDnAmE* (she didn't do it on purpose), thank you for sharing. I'm sorry I missed it when you said that." and I almost cried. I wasn't sure how she would react, because I live in a small conservative town and most people are homophobic and transphobic. That made me so happy today :)
