LGBTQ Resources & Helpful Links
I have compiled a list of LGBTQ friendly businesses, support groups, events, entertainment, forums, blogs and professionals from my own experiences. I will update this page regularly and add to it when given recommendations from those I trust. I will thoroughly research each reference given to me before posting my approval, because I want this to be a place where transgender and LGBTQ individuals and their support can visit with confidence. Enjoy!
