Joy and I had a wonderful conversation about coming out and how painful that was for them, and how with self work and healing they have been able to come to terms with family and moving into their most authentic self.
Joy Love uses They/Them Pronouns and is a 22 years old intuitive self love and empowerment coach. Joy works with motivated self healers to empower themselves with radical self love and acceptance, to transform their doubts and fears into self trust, so they can have a relationship with themselves that feels healthy and wholesome. As with many queer humans, Joy didn't start out having the most loving and amazing relationship with themself. Coming from abuse and rejection and having turned that pain into their power, Joy is so passionate about using their gifts to help others heal themselves!
Joy has put together a wonderful list of Instagram resources that they have used to help on their journey.

LGB youth rejected by their fathers over their sexual orientation are nearly twice as likely to attempt suicide. Of those who attempt suicide, 48% report rejection from their fathers, and 28% report rejection from their mothers. The researchers noted that many of the suicide attempts occurred in the same year that youth came out to their parents. Family rejection is significantly associated with poorer health outcomes for LGBTQ youth. A study of 528 LGB youth found that those who report family rejection were over 8 times as likely to attempt suicide, almost 6 times as likely to be depressed. Psychological abuse and efforts to discourage gender-atypical behavior were associated with increased risk of suicide attempts. Similarly, a study of 224 LGB youth found that family rejection was associated with increased rates of reports of attempted suicide, depression, and other risky behaviors. Gay and trans teens rejected by their parents over their sexual identity were over 8 times as likely to attempt suicide, compared with gay and trans youth who report low rejection levels. A US study found that 40% of LGB youth had been violently attacked, with 61% of attacks being perpetrated by family members.Download the pdf here
