Description: "Peer counseling in one way this community can be reached and helped. Through this year’s report we are able to understand that physiologically and psychologically the community is extremely vulnerable and at risk. They go through immense stress and depression which affects them emotionally and mentally forcing them to be suicidal, abuse substance and practice unsafe sex. Most targeted interventions and counseling is offered to MSM (Men who have sex with men) below the poverty line, but the majority of LGBT are from the middle and the lower middle class who are oblivious of any such services, they should be at least a platform or a forum for them to be educated about sex, sexuality, their rights and offer support. Chennai Dost is a self funded group trying its best to reach out to this invisible community hoping to help and make a visible difference when there is enough resource."
