Poster for sendtherightmessage.ca campaign by the LGBTQ Initiative, about responding in non-harmful ways to LGBTQ folk

Image of person holding a smartphone in both hands. Phone has a texting app open. Grey textbox, indicating someone sent a message to the owner of the phone, reads, “I’m thinking about coming out to my parents tonight”, followed by three crying face emojis. Blue text boxes underneath read, “Your dad is going to have a heart attack!” with a red exclamation mark symbol next to it and a message underneath the symbol saying ‘Not delivered’, “Don’t get disowned! LOL” with a red exclamation mark symbol next to it and a message underneath the symbol saying ‘Not delivered’, “Finally, you’ve been in the closet forever.” with a red exclamation symbol next to it and a message underneath the symbol saying ‘Not delivered’ and finally, “Do you want to talk about it? Is there anything I can do?”, this time without the symbol or message, indicating it was sent. Underneath this is a grey speech bubble with three dots, indicating that the other person is typing their response. Next to the phone is white text reading “Think of your impact. Rethink your words.” in all caps and with the words “impact” and “words” underlined. Underneath the phone is more white text in a different font reading “sendtherightmessage.ca”.
