We have to find ways to help people in need

Last December, when I learned that Interline, an organization that provides direct assistance to people in the LGBTQ+ community, was going to end its overnight phone support service due to lack of funding, I believed. The average of 10,000 calls per night shocked me and I’ll tell you why.

Interline, formerly known as Gay Listening, made a big difference in my family when my brother, a misunderstood gay man, forced me to go there to find out how to understand the extent of his psychological distress. Help our parents, especially our fathers, to finally open their hearts to Him.

If I had not been counseled there, my brother would probably not be of this world. Believe it or not, he was saved by this organization when he gave his first address in the middle of the night, when he was in a big panic.

The organization bailed itself out once with a massive fundraising campaign. But despite its success, the sinews of war forced the government to continue its efforts to awaken the need for long-term involvement in the services provided by the organization.

When I read in the newspapers that Minister Martin Biron and the cabinet of Minister responsible Lionel Cormond chose to improve the government offer to ensure the stability of Interline, I started breathing through the nose again. When we are affected by a problem, we have a better awareness of its basic needs.

Forever a fan of Interline for his brother

Our poor nonprofits, so critical to our social balance, deserve our full and complete support.
