Life Tips: Internalised homophobia

Recognising that we’ve all been shaped by this reality is the first step in overcoming our own internalised homophobia.

Here are some tips on dealing with internalised homophobia:

• Recognise these feelings and the negative things you tell yourself

• Identify and address the sources of these feelings and thoughts

• Eliminate sources of homophobia in your life, where possible

• Steer clear of homophobic people as far as possible

• Spend time with LGBTIQ people and learn from them

• Surround yourself with supportive people

• Learn to love and accept yourself

• Talk to a professional
