About your grief

Many people think of grief as something that happens after death; but it can also be felt when someone in your culture or community has been harmed through discrimination or oppression.

As a 2SLGBTQ+ person, you may already know how discrimination and oppression affect you. It’s also possible you haven’t given it much thought before now. When someone is dying or has died, the grief can also include other losses in your life. These losses may or may not be recognized or understood by others.
