Are you looking to learn about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) identities? You, friend, have come to the right place.
Thankfully, the internet has provided a lot of outlets for LGBTQ+ education. Unthankfully, when you’re googling around it’s sometimes hard to sort out the accurate from the misleading, the positive from the stigmatizing, and to know where to start.
Here at The Safe Zone Project we are focused on providing opportunities for people to learn about gender and sexuality that are:
- Accessible, engaging, and — ideally — fun!
We try to make it as easy as possible for folks who want to learn, to learn.
So scroll down this page, use the search bar, click around in the menus — do what you need to do the find the answers you’re looking for.
Looking for things to Read, Watch, and Listen to?
If you’re looking for more of a passive learning experience, check out our Resources Page. We have a big ol’ list of links there, including several dozen articles, videos, and so on, that will help you learn about gender, sexuality, and LGBTQ+ identities.
They’re arranged alphabetically, so we wouldn’t recommend you start at the top and work your way down. Instead, here are a two places to get started:
- TransWhat? – this website is a collection of articles for aspiring transgender allies.
- Breaking through the Binary: Gender Explained Using Continuums – this is a digestible, easy to read article (by one of the Safe Zone Project co-creators) that will help you make sense of the ideas of gender identity, gender expression, and sex.
