READING RESOURCES

Note

This page is provided as a resource only and is not intended as an endorsement of any individual or book. There’s a continually growing number of resources available for seeking help and support, as well as researching issues relevant to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex people of faith. I have listed just a few of them here to get you started on this journey.
