The ABCs of Sexuality is a helpful glossary of frequently-used terms in discussions around sexual identity and gender expression
RFA LGBTQIA+ Terminology Guide Adapted and Updated in January 2022, this Guide defines terms within the lens of parts of everyone’s identity, including sexes, gender identities and expressions, and orientations.

This Toolbox is published by the American Psychological Association to provide foundational information based in decades of research and study that promotes the health and well-being of LGBTQIA+ youth in their homes, schools, communities and medical practices.
The Safe Zone Project website is packed with educational resources for Safe Zone trainers/trainees and beyond, all of which are free to use in programming or planning that affirms and uplifts LGBTQIA+ people.
