A note from BSG
This is not a fully comprehensive list. It is intended to give you a better understanding of how you can get involved in LGBTQIA+ issues in America. We will be updating this site regularly, but it can never be comprehensive. That is why we need your help. If you have any suggestions for content to add or change on our Student Support pages, please send them to email@example.com.
A good place to start is Brockport EDI’s resources pages which include information for ally students.
