Resources and help lines

Here are a few resources that I thought might be helpful for people dealing with sexuality issues:
  • The Trevor Helpline is the first round-the-clock national toll-free suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth. It's open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. 800-850-8078.
  • The Human Rights Campaign has posted a guide to coming out. It includes basic info as well as contact numbers and links for other organizations.
  • PFLAG is a great resource for friends and family of LGBT folks.

For resources concerning violence, the two biggest groups seem to be located in NYC and SF, though they can be resources to people living anywhere in the country:
  • Community United Against Violence 24-hour Support Line at (415) 333-HELP is open to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer and Questioning survivors of hate violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and police abuse. Calls during business hours can be translated into Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog, Vietnamese and other languages.
  • New York City's Anti-Violence Project maintains a list of resources with info also on Hate Crimes, Domestic Violence, HIV/AIDS, and Transgender issues.

Please, if you have any more that would be appropriate for this list, add them or PM them to me. Thanks.

This is a good one for Christians who want support , again, in sexual matters.


Edit: sorry Fluffy, I note that this site is listed on the site you gave as reference.

I would, however like to emphasise that the above site is one dedicated to Christian Gays, Lesbians............and it might appeal to American Christian homosexuals as well.

I wanted to add a few more resources. I know this is an older thread for sure, but if you don't mind, I think these are valuable. :)

youthresource.com is for and by GLBTQ young people.

advocatesforyouth.org/glbtq.htm is for advocates (parents, teachers, friends) of GLBTQ youth.

glbtq.com is a great website, as it has bios of famous folks who identify this way. It's essentially an encyclopedia, and lets people know they are NOT alone.
