Notes

"Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, pansexual, aromantic, genderqueer, nonbinary, and intersex students may have varied experiences in college depending on the community they encounter. Statistics published by the Human Rights Campaign revealed that only 26% of LGBTQ+ teens feel safe in their schools."

"For many young queer people, college is where things finally begin to change. To make college a little easier, we’ve created this ultimate guide of resources for LGBTQ+ students in higher education, including scholarships, resources, clubs, anti-bullying hotlines and more. For anyone considering themselves to be somewhere along the gender, sexuality, or romanticism spectrum, here’s what one might consider to be a handbook for LGBTQ+ college students, with helpful LGBTQ+ information such as ways to make the college campus feel more inclusive and less homophobic. Here are some top resources for LGBTQ students going to or getting ready for college."

Resource categories include information for Before You Go to College (including a list of scholarships/grants for LGBTQ+ students); Finding Community: LGBTQ+ Organizations, Clubs, and Events; information on How to Fight Discrimination and Homophobia; and LGBTQ Terms and Other Resources.

"Black Queer Power is a brand created to harness, promote, and galvanize that power in an effort to promote change making efforts and to support the work of Black Queer and Trans Creatives and Entrepreneurs.
