"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.

Notes

"We approach the health and rights crises faced by transgender sex workers holistically using harm reduction, human rights principles, economic and social justice, along with a commitment to empowerment and pride in finding solutions from our own community. The first issue we address is that of immediate need/crisis support for transgender sex workers, including community members from the NYC area, across the US and globally through supporting asylum seekers from our priority communities. The next issue we address is health care and health resilience for transgender sex workers. We need to address this issue because our community is hypermarginalized and has a profound need for safe sex supplies and free/low cost health to address both trans specific and holistic needs. We currently work on housing since so many in our G.L.I.T.S.’ community are without stable housing, deepening the cycle of disenfranchisement. G.L.I.T.S. also advocates and educates to ensure health, wellness and inclusion of transgender people in our society and to address the stigmatization and criminalization of trans people because of anti-prostitution/anti-sex work laws."
