LGBQ+ and Transgender Resources
Stand with Trans – Self-described as “a group of moms who have come together because we have a transgender child. We live all across the United States. Our children are at different ages and at different stages along their journeys. Some are just beginning to transition, some are living authentically as adults already. We come from different backgrounds and most of us have actually not met (yet). What we have in common is an unconditional LOVE for our children. We are allies to the transgender community.” They’re available to trans youth and parents, to help provide resources and support. “Love at the other end of the phone.”
Trans in the South – As part of the Campaign for Southern Equality, “Trans in the South: A Guide to Resources and Services, is a directory of more than 400 Southern health service providers that the Campaign for Southern Equality team has confirmed to be trans-friendly and trans-competent. Available in both English and Spanish, you’ll find lists of trans-friendly mental health providers, primary care physicians, HIV care specialists, attorneys, endocrinologists, and more across 13 Southern states. The guide also includes resources to assist with funding medical transition, and helpful information about insurance coverage. We hope this resource guide helps people access the services they need to survive and to thrive.”
LGBT Rights Toolkit – A project of the Campaign for Southern Equality, “to help LGBTQ Southerners – especially those in small towns and rural areas – understand and protect their rights. The Toolkit consists of Health Care Power of Attorney forms for every Southern state, LGBTQ-friendly attorney and physician lists, links to legal and mental health resources, and Name and Gender Change Guides. It also provides current information about changes in state and federal law against the backdrop of a rapidly-changing legal landscape.”
