Resources Page

Back in January, we put out the call to help us build a resources page. Unfortunately, that project fell to the wayside. But now it’s time to bring it back!

We have begun to build our Resources page. I used all of the submissions from last time to get us started, plus I threw in a few myself. If you have any suggestions for us to link to, you can leave them in the comments or use the contact form. Things we are interested in:

  • Secular charities that serve queer people or have a reputation for being queer-friendly.
  • Domestic violence shelters that welcome queer individuals
  • Support groups, including mental health and addiction recovery that are secular and friendly to queer people
  • Online support forums for queer people
  • Queer activist organizations
  • Online information regarding queer, skeptical, atheist, humanist, and/or freethinking issues.
  • Anything else you feel might be relevant for a resources page.

We hope you will help us build a fantastic resources page!

    Here are the first few things that came to my mind:
     
    http://www.ftmguide.org/ (it's directed toward trans men, but could be helpful for anyone interested in trans issues; it includes detailed medical information on how hormones work and breaks down myths about testosterone and trans men)
     
    also along those lines, http://transhealth.vch.ca/resources/library/tcpdocs/consumer/hormones-FTM.pdf
     
    http://unicornsareace.wordpress.com/2011/04/30/the-laypersons-guide-to-understanding-trans-experience-and-identity/ (not a bad trans 101)
     
    http://tranarchism.com/2010/11/26/not-your-moms-trans-101/ (a brief and provocative essay that has really challenged and influenced my views of gender)
     
    http://genderfork.com/ (on the fun side- a gorgeous repository of genders, including hundreds of neat quotes and people describing how they view their gender identities)
     
    http://transequality.org/Resources/index.html (for the studies/statistics on LGBTQ topics, etc… though I should note I've only looked over the "Injustice at Every Turn" study)
     
    Anyway, hope that helps.  Good luck!
