Here's how as LGBTQ+ to stay safe online.
Most LGBTQ are Cyberbullied. Here's How to Stay Safe Online
We at vpnMentor conducted a survey in which we asked 695 LGBTQ+ people worldwide about their experiences online as they relate to their sexual orientation and gender identity. The results – referenced throughout this article – illuminated the unique challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community. Here are some of our key findings:+
73% of all respondents in all categories of gender identity and sexual orientation have been personally attacked or harassed online.
50% of all respondents in all categories of gender identity and sexual orientation have suffered sexual harassment online.
When it comes to sexual orientation, asexual people feel the least safe online, and gay men the safest.
When it comes to gender identity, transgender women feel the least safe online, and cisgender men the safest.
Transgender women are the most likely to be outed against their will online, while cisgender men are least likely.
+For complete results, see the appendix. As experts in the field of cybersecurity, it is our mission to provide practical strategies for coping with adversity, bigotry, and abuse on the web, which is why we created this guide. Whether you are part of the LGBTQ+ community or are an ally, we hope you find this guide helpful.

JOHN BELLAMY COMMENTS I would add that a HUGE amount of homophobia and bullying comes from WITHIN THE LGBT COMMUNITY. THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE - COMING FROM ME AS A GAY MAN OUT AND RUNNING GAY BUSINESS' FOR 40 YEARS IS THE DESTRUCTIVE AND DAMNING ATTITUDE THROWN AT LGBT BY LGBT.
WE DO OURSELVES MORE HARM THAN ANY OTHER PART OF SOCIETY.
Every single Cross Dressing / TV / TS weekend we have done here - a percentage will be really cruel and unkind behind the back of those attending they envy, resent and are jealous of and the knives in the back are clear and painful.
Most are charming and thoughtful but there is always the small percentage that seem to have it in their goal to destroy.
This is so for any part of the LGBT community and not any singular part.
You know from my Blog here that I get tons of abusive e mails and most come from within the gay community and running any kind of gay venue comes with a MASSIVE price tag attached where you need very broad shoulders and an ability to see beyond, or you will be sucked under and drowned by the abuse shoveled in your direction BY GAY MEN - or at least from MANY gay men who have wives and kids tucked away some place and they LOVE to find fault with those of us who are out and proud, BUT DON'T GET ME WRONG - being called a cunt on occasions by gay men whop I will NOT allow to abuse me and where I speak back and read the riot act at them - and they don't like when the truth hits them in the face and how vile their actions - words and deeds actually are to the LGBT community as a whole and how by being nice - would send a very different message and what do they do in return, call me a cunt and leave negative reports about Hamilton Hall anywhere they can - sop destroying a thing of beauty because they think they can.
Then there are just those bitchy queens who think it smart and clever to be a bitch. The truth is - it just makes that person look like a low life, a victim taking his / her own ' stuff' out on others and is to be pitied as sad - and rather pathetic actually.
Being a loving and kind person is so seen as a weakness when THAT IS THE STRENGTH.
kindness is what will see us through all evils and all cruel times.
