I grew up in a family that was open and accepting as long as I was happy and safe they have always been supportive. I have never taken for granted just how lucky I am to come from that family style. In 2012 I came out as pansexual and in 2014 I joined multiple support groups, by the end of 2014 I had completed my safe space training, open door training, and remove stigma classes. I now run a Facebook page with 17k+ members who also identify as Pansexual and ensure they have a safe space to talk. I now live in a smaller community that isn’t as open and would love to start volunteering again.
