What is your founding story?

"The support group was formed as a way to facilitate and improve access of LBT communities to support spaces. LBT communities are further invisible within the LGBTQ+ identities, and often do not have any support systems. Group founders themselves faced adverse experiences and in many instances also knew people who could not seek legal recourse. The group was thus formed to address these challenges."
