LGBTQ+ Safety

Welcome to our LGBTQ+ Safety Page. This Page is a resource for anyone seeking support and help for issues specifically related to online safety for the LGBTQ+ community. Whether for yourself, a friend or family member, you will find information on tools and resources available across Facebook’s platforms to help safeguard your experience online.

The LGBTQ+ community has always been an important part of the Facebook community. We know that representation and having a community matters — whether that be LGBTQ+ people creatively expressing themselves, finding a supportive network, or raising money for causes important to the community. We want Facebook to be a place where LGBTQ+ people can share their voices, build community, and bring the world closer together.

Our Approach

We recognize the importance of having a safe place to connect online. We take a comprehensive approach to safety, designing policies, building safeguards, and developing resources and tools in partnership with key LGBTQ+ safety and advocacy organizations around the world to foster a safer online environment. This approach is ever-evolving, and input from our community is critical to informing and improving this approach.
