    Hey Trinity,

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. How you identify is who you are and it is insensitive and understandably upsetting when others deny that when it is simply the truth, especially if they are family. You are brave for holding on to your identity and also for reaching out for support when you feel like there isn’t anything you can do. Regardless of the situation, it is inappropriate for people to abuse you in the ways that you described. It might be a good idea to look into what reporting that abuse might look like. If you call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453 or, they would be able to tell you how the process might work and the potential outcomes it could produce. Additionally, it might be a good idea to call the LGBTQ National Youth Talkline at 1-800-246-7743. They are an organization that specializes in the sorts of experiences that you might be going through. They can offer guidance and support and resources that are more tailored to your needs. If you would like to talk more about any of these options or what other possibilities there might be, please reach out to us on our 24/7 hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY or on chat at You do deserve to feel loved and accepted!

    Take care,
