You helped Josh!

Josh has been living abroad with his boyfriend for over two years. They both worked from home during the pandemic and his boyfriend started drinking and becoming abusive. At first his boyfriend blamed it on them working and living in the same apartment and spending all of their time together.

But as restrictions have lifted and they are working hybrid, part time at home and part time at their jobs, nothing has changed.

Josh is afraid of his partner. He wants to be loved and cherished but he feels used and discarded. Our crisis email advocate helped Josh work through his feelings and options as he decided what to do next.

Josh did leave the relationship, went home to the US for a couple of months and worked remotely, then went back abroad. Unfortunately his now x-partner is stalking and threatening him. We helped Josh understand what resources were available to him as an LGBTQ identified person in the foreign country.

Josh is grateful for our support during this difficult time, and we are grateful for you for making our support possible. Thank you! The Pathways Team
