Whether you are transgender, cisgender, nonbinary, or not sure yet, these are all totally OK and normal ways to be. If someone calls you names, threatens you, or is physically violent because of your gender presentation or identity, it’s their problem, not yours; and they should not get away with it. This is called transphobic bullying.

If you’re being bullied, feeling lonely, depressed, anxious, isolated, or just want to talk to someone, it’s always a good idea to reach out and ask for help. Check out these incredible resources and organizations below where you can talk about anything, including your gender identity, romantic or sexual orientation, relationship issues, bullying, problems at work, HIV/AIDS, STDs/STIs, anxiety, safer sex information, suicide, and much more.
