LGBTQ Resource List









Substance Use

Mental Health



  • Soul ForceFamily that travels and does speaking events, have a ton of materials on their site, and do an “equality ride” (super cool), all from a Christian perspective
  • The “Not All Like That” (NALT) Project – videos of (awesome) Christians (mostly families) explaining how they fully support LGBTQ people and that being Christian shouldn’t mean being anti-gay.
  • Religious Institute — “A multifaith organization dedicated to advocating for sexual health, education, and justice in faith communities and society.”




Beyond campus, it’s important to carve out a community for yourself. For students of faith, that includes finding a church or other religious home you feel comfortable with. Other students might prioritize meeting other members of the LGBTQ+ community to form friendships with people outside of college and find possible mentors. Many students also want to find events and other ways to form connections off-campus.

Support Groups

LGBTQ+ students need the same support as all other students, but as a group, they also have individual needs. Finding a welcoming support group is important for many students. Locally, many schools offer gay-straight alliances and pride groups. There are also a plethora of online resources to help you find a local group or connect with other people online.

  • How to Start a Gay-Straight Alliance: Many schools already offer a gay-straight alliance, but this information can help you start one if there isn’t one on your campus.
  • True Colors United: True Colors United works to help LGBTQ+ youth who are experiencing homelessness.
  • LGBTribe: This peer-to-peer support group offers help from those facing similar life issues.
  • Support and Discussion Groups: From Arab-American LGBT people to LGBTQ+ people in AA, this site offers a variety of specialized support groups, many of which meet online using Zoom or Discord.
  • LGBT Chat Rooms: Find support for LGBT teens in these moderated chats.

Anti-Bullying Resources for LGBTQ+ Students

Bullying is a real concern for LGBTQ+ teens and young adults. In 2017, 33% of LGBTQ+ students surveyed reported being bullied at school, and 27% reported experiencing cyberbullying. Meanwhile, 17.1% of heterosexual students said they were bullied at school, and 13.3% said they had been bullied online. It’s important to know that if this happens to you, you’re not alone, and there are resources that can help you.
