Helpful Publications

In addition to PFLAG Booklets, you might consult these publications produced by other organizations, including the ACLU, Advocates for Youth, Human Rights Campaign, and LGBT Access project.

ACLU Publications

The ACLU offers numerous free publications on LGBTQ issues and AIDS that you can download for free or in some cases order in hard copy. Also see ACLU Teacher Resources for publications on advocating for LGBTQ youth, including Parents’ Guide to Public School Boards.

Advocates for Youth

Advocates for Youth creates brochures on a range of health and sexuality topics that you can download for free in PDF format or order at low cost. For LGBTQ youth, these brochures are particularly appropriate:

I Think I Might Be Bisexual, Now What Do I Do?

I Think I might Be Transgender, Now What Do I Do

I Think I Might Be Gay, Now What Do I Do?

I Think I Might Be Lesbian, Now What Do I Do?

Human Rights Campaign Publications

The Human Rights Campaign, known as HRC, provides free PDF files of publications on a diverse range of issues, including coming out, transgender health, and much more.

If you are an at-risk youth or know one, consult On Our Own: A Survival Guide for Independent LGBTQ Youth, which HRC produced in partnership with True Colors Fund, co-founded by Cyndi Lauper, and Time Out Youth Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. It provides information for youth living on their own after leaving unsupportive or abusive homes, or aging out of foster care.

King County Trans* Resource and Referral Guide

The King County Trans* Resource and Referral Guide is a community draft project created the LGBT Access project that covers free or low-cost community-based services for the local trans* community.
