Free LGBT Help Lines

A Safe Place to Talk, Online and On the Phone

You can receive help, information, referrals, and support for a range of issues without being judged or rushed into any decision you are not prepared to make. Across the country, Fenway’s help lines are a source of support. Talk to our trained volunteers about safer sex, coming out, where to find gay-friendly establishments, HIV and AIDS, depression, suicide, and anti-gay/lesbian harassment and violence. No matter what is on your mind, we are here to encourage and ensure you that you are not alone.

Our help lines are anonymous and confidential phone lines that offer lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning adults and young people a “safe place” to call for information, referrals, and support. Our trained volunteers can help you with coming out as well as locating LGBT groups and services in your local area. Our volunteers can also offer support and guidance around common issues including safer sex and relationships and HIV/AIDS.
