  • I am an almost 16 year old nonbinary who wants to run away.

    Everything I love, create and am is scrutinized, punished for and blamed. I want to escape before it gets worse, which it has been steadily for years. What do I do first? how do I figure out where to go? I dont have anybody. I want to kill myself, Im tired of living in fear, and getting gaslit, but if I can have an alternative so I can make it to adulthood, and be free, Ill try it. what do I do? Im near boston, so its cold, and dangerous, plus its extra dangerous to be LGBTQ+ for me too, I dont want t be on the streets but I dont think I have a choice. If theres any advice or ideas on how to plan and survive and not get found, please let me know? thank you random internet folk.

    Hi, thank you for reaching out. It sounds like you are feeling overwhelmed at home and are not accepted and respected for who you are, which you always deserve to be treated respectfully. It sounds like you are wanting to escape and are open to different ways of doing so. We care about your safety and do not want you to kill yourself or harm yourself in any way. We can definitely discuss possible options to help or places to go if you are interested. One option you always have as well if reporting the abuse you are experiencing to Child Protective Services, we can help with this as well. We can help more when we are able to have a conversation, so if you are wanting to explore options more, please either call our hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or chat us online at We hope to hear from you soon.
