Hello, Change Makers!
We want to make sure all LGBTQ+ students are aware of a resource available to support them with any circumstance impacting them. For all our educators around the world, I hope you can share resources for students in your school's Gay-Straight Alliance or LGBTQ+ club. Please feel free to express and share some other amazing LGBTQ+ resources so we can do our best to review and write about them for students and educators to be aware those resources exist.
Below is just a quick overview of possible resources in different areas. These resources are excellent for educators to bring back to your campus, students to know resources to help them whether you are part of the LGBTQ+ community or an ally, and how to get involved with the project to help others in your community.
