LGBTQ+ people face continuous discrimination in their personal lives, workplace and other social settings. Some resort to reclusive lifestyles to avoid the pain and trauma; most push through the agony of social rejection while others commit suicide. LGBTQ+ are also victims of brutal hate crimes sometimes resulting in death.  Experiencing constant discrimination can have detrimental effects on the psyche of a LGBTQ+ person affecting their financial, mental and physical well being.  I Am Me Inc was created to combat these issues.

I Am Me Inc. was formed to offer safe social spaces with programs that uplift and unify the LGBTQ community.  To show them through action that you are not alone, You are loved by a community of LGBTQ+ and Allies.  A space where you can "Be You" and build positive social connections.  The Board at I Am Me Inc. believe together we can heal support and collectively eliminate discrimination one person at a time by educating them about our community.

Remember Stonewall

The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous demonstrations by members of the gay community in response to a police raid that began in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City, New York, United States of America. 

Stonewall sparked the fight for civil rights for LGBTQ+ and the reason why we celebrate pride!!

Before Stonewall

In 1952,  The American Psychiatric Association (APA) added Homosexuality to its diagnostic manual as a sociopathic personality disturbance resulting in a series of psychiatric treatments including electroshock therapy.  This continued until the 70's, Homosexuality was removed from the APA manual in 1973.

Being a Homophile was a criminal act from the 1930's until the early 1970's. LGBTQ+ people were arrested and photos were placed in the newspaper resulting in job loss, possible divorce and admission into an mental institution.
