RIGHT HERE... 7 Cups of Tea is the perfect place to connect with other LGBTQ people in private. Check the forums and reach out to people through there.

My fabulous friend, please allow me to introduce you to the wonderful world of... online dating sites! You can feel free to ask about people's sexualities there and find people like you in your area. Also, if you're not into the dating thing, tumblr is a great website full of accepting people for all sexualities.

There is some debate about whether polyamory falls under the Queer banner (though I heard someone say that if you feel like telling people about your sexual identity or relationship style would cause people to treat you differently or lead to discrimination you then you fall into LGBTQIA+ issues) but my first port of call would be facebook; this is how I first found about about my local poly community. There are probably private groups that you can join to connect with people locally, either for support online or to join events. Most universities have Queer spaces or societies that have safer spaces policies which prevent people from identifying you outside the space without your consent. If you are familiar with the site, reddit.com probably has subgroups (even specific ones) for most gender/sexual identities.

On here you can click on a person's profile and it will tell you what they feel they can help and support you with. If you want to speak to them then just click the 'Message' button on their profile and they will happily help you I am sure.

If your looking for a listener that is lgbtq+ you can search LGBT and they pop up but if your looking for other members to talk to in private you can't do that aless you use something else besides 7cups

There are many lgbt+ groups online (i.e. facebook, you could go on omegle and type "lgbt+" in the interests bar) or if you know any lgbt+ people in real life, you can go and talk to them. Also there are many lgbt+ listeners here

There is a thing called TrevorSpace which I think is really cool. There's a lot of nice people on there.

You can look for online groups that you can chat with. You also can go out there and meet people and find a few LGBTQ groups and meet up with them more often.

I would suggest looking into local LGBTQ+ community groups. If you are is school, see is your school has one. You should never meet with anyonein private that you have not gotten to know in a public setting first.

Well Tumblr/Instagram have groups that support LGBTQ+ people. Also, hashtags regarding what you're looking for are great help if you're looking for something specific

You can always browse listeners and select the LGBTQ+ topic to connect with a listener. There is also the LGBTQ+ support room.

You can use online chats and forums, including 7 Cups forum, Trevor Space, LGBT chat and other websites. These are spaces of group socialization, but you can also send personal messages if you wish to make it more private. With time, you can also consider joining LGBT groups or circles near where you live, you can be sure that everyone will respect your privacy and no one else will know unless it's hour wish to let them know.
