LGBTQ+ Issues and Privacy (Please boost)
For everyone that says that #IDontHaveAnythingToHide regarding #privacy, I just want to let you know that I am a #transgender woman, living in the same household as my parents, who are not fans of the #LGBTQ+ community, and I have to hide the fact that I'm #trans because I'm not ready to tell my family who I really am until I am able to move out, where I can truly have a place to take refuge to if they don't accept me for who I am.
