You know, the LGBTQ+ community is extremely different in different countries, regions or even cities. While in one country I can associate myself to the community, feel included, and actively participate in raising awareness or even politically, in another country, where the community is so oppressed or even the culture itself is oppressive, being pansexual and non binary are excellent identities to bully.
