Ashley, sorry for the late response (hope your well?).
I cannot recommend VR enough (via a Oculus quest 2), particularly VRchat, there’s some very accepting and protective communities, just don’t upset the furries they are your allies, weirdly i know.
I don’t recommend the main public lobbies, but instead stick the user created ones, just drop LGBTQ or Pride into the search and away you go.
You’ll have a tonne of friends within weeks, people literally eat, sleep and everything else in there.
And if anyone upsets you block and report them, or at the press of button bail to your home world.
