PFLAG

Family Acceptance Project
The Family Acceptance Project® is a research, intervention, education and policy initiative that works to prevent health and mental health risks for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) children and youth, including suicide, homelessness, drug use and HIV – in the context of their families, cultures and faith communities. We use a research-based, culturally grounded approach to help ethnically, racially and religiously diverse families learn to support their LGBTQ children.

GLADD
GLAAD rewrites the script for LGBTQ acceptance. As a dynamic media force, GLAAD tackles tough issues to shape the narrative and provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change. GLAAD protects all that has been accomplished and creates a world where everyone can live the life they love.

LGBTQ Comprehensive Health & Wellness Guide
Members of the LGBTQ+ community have unique and complex health needs that heterosexuals don’t face. Health disparities and barriers to care can make staying healthy challenging, but knowing LGBTQ+ health risks can ensure you stay on top of your health. Local and national resources can help you prevent or treat these health conditions with the right medical testing, care and support.

Center for Disease Control Recommendations
Positive environments are important to help all youth thrive. However, the health needs of LGBTQIA Youth can differ from their heterosexual peers. On this page, find resources from the CDC, other government agencies, and community organizations for LGBTQIA Youth, their friends, educators, parents, and family members to support positive environments.

Safe Zone Project
Safe Zone trainings are one of the best places to start learning about all things LGBTQ+, but they are just that: the start.

We hope that you find the Safe Zone Project to be a helpful resource in creating LGBTQ+/Ally trainings and workshops, but we are by no means the only helpful resource on the web. Below is a collection of links to some of our favorite sites and projects, hope you enjoy!

Resources

The Trevor Project
Parents, family and friends can have a big impact, especially in the lives of LGBTQ youth. Sometimes, these people are the ones who help us get the support we need – other times, it’s us who connect them with life-affirming resources.

For some LGBTQ young people, family and friends aren’t a part of their support system at all because of things like rejection, discrimination, or a lack of understanding. That can be really difficult, but we want you to know that you aren’t alone. No matter how your friends and family affect your life, or how you make a difference in theirs, The Trevor Project is always here to support you. You are a worthwhile person and deserve to be treated with respect and love!
