Human Rights Campaign

The Human Rights Campaign has a number of wonderful resources regarding the topics of being an ally, coming out, religion, and the workplace. 

National LGBT Health Education Center

The National LGBT Health Education Center provides educational programs, resources, and consultation to health care organizations with the goal of optimizing quality, cost-effective health care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.

LGBTQ Addiction Guide

A research-based awareness guide on a niche that is often overlooked - addiction in the LGBTQ community. Finding help with substance abuse is often more difficult for LGBTQ people, as many other obstacles are prevalent along with the fight with addiction - this in depth resource helps alleviate that stress by facilitating help in the form of useful information and support systems.

The Advocate

The Advocate is an American LGBT-interest magazine, printed bi-monthly and available by subscription. The Advocate brand also includes a web site. Both magazine and web site have an editorial focus on news, politics, opinion, and arts and entertainment of interest to lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT) people. The magazine, established in 1967, is the oldest and largest LGBT publication in the United States and the only surviving one of its kind that was founded before the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City that is generally credited as the beginning of the LGBT rights movement.

LGBTQ Architect

LGBTQ Architect is a compilation of resources - funding proposals, outreach strategies, programming resources, and more - from campus resource programs across the country.
