About This Guide

The LGBT community is a diverse group of individuals from many backgrounds and cultures.  While it would be impossible to include everyone’s unique perspective, this guide makes every effort to represent the common threads that those in the LGBT community share.

While some feel that 'LGBT' is not sufficient to describe the diversity of this community, for the purpose of this guide, we will use LGBT as an overarching header, but may refer to LGBTQ+, LGBTQAI, LGBTQQAI, or any other variation, when used by a selected source.

It is our goal to be as inclusive as possible, but if you feel that an area is lacking or have suggestions for additional resources, PLEASE let me know.
