“The only thing wrong with being gay is how some people treat you when they find out.” – Robin Reardon

May is the international month against homophobia & transphobia. Here are tips on dealing with these kinds of incidents:

• Know your rights and the law.

• Seek help from people who have the authority to help address the issue.

• Get support from professionals and your community, family or friends.

• Rise above the insults. Try not to take them personally.

• Keep a cool head and mind.

• Try to avoid a direct confrontation.

• Accept yourself but realise that not everyone will.

• Remember, it’s not about you, it’s about them!
