Gay Farmer Helpline
Farming is a difficult business at the best of times; the isolation, bad prices, animal diseases and the red tape make life difficult for all farmers. Depression has become an occupational disease as many of you will know.
Should you happen to be gay as well this will add a further interesting dimension!
Be reassured that there are many other gay farmers. You are not the only one.
Despite what you may feel, being gay is not a handicap – in fact it has many positive aspects to it.
But there may be decisions to be made: should I come out? Can I come out? What will be the effect on those around me? And there are other questions such as how would it affect the farm succession?
You may want to talk over your situation and that is where the Gay Farmer Helpline comes in.Call the helpline and talk to someone who understands the farming situation as well as what it is like to be gay.
Total Confidentiality is assured – we understand how delicate and difficult the situation can be.
