      Hey!

      My name is Chris. I’m a queer, non binary artist from Vancouver BC. Seven months ago, I was hit with SSHL in my left ear and it took all but 20 percent of my hearing, replacing it with a jet engine sound.

      Just out of curiosity, are there any LGBTQ facing the same obstacles as me? I once was a world traveller and took time to find my silence...but now, I’m faced with more challenges to find silence again.

      To be fair, there are a couple corners for Christians, autists, and musicians, so why not let queer people have their own as well? This condition is troublesome and people feel comfortable expressing their problems with like minded individuals.

      I am a Carpenter and Joiner, Audiophile too and would like my own space to chat with like minded people. I wish we could just stick to Tinnitus, keep things plain and simple but I suppose that's too easy.

      Sorry @Chris Fraser, I am not a lgbt person and I think we should just let this thread exist and not devolve any more into a debate about its existence.

      As Pope of MPP I am calling for this thread to be only for lgbt people discussing their tinnitus so any further posts in here should be for them only.
