When you run a support service like Support U, we see the pain of DA/DV and the pain it causes to the individual. This play brings the trauma and the context to life for anyone in a DA/DV relationship. We ask don’t be Simon, reachout and get support. Many feel they aren’t worth it when you get rejection time and again for being LGBT+ then end up in a violent relationship. You are worth it. #DontBeSimon #LGBT #DA #YouAreWorthIt
