As you have probably discovered, there is a lot of information circulating on the Internet about LGBTQ people and issues concerning their rights. While much of this information is factual and worthwhile, some of it is incorrect, biased, and even cruel and defamatory. Consequently, we urge caution as you search for information. Information provided by LGBTQ friendly organizations can be helpful. Such organizations include Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Lambda Legal, PFLAG National, The National Center for Lesbian Rights, Transgender Law Center, and the National Center for Transgender Equality to name a few.
At PFLAG Los Angeles, we know the power of telling our stories. That is why we have decided to begin a list of media and websites that can support and encourage LGBTQ persons and their families. It will begin small and grow over time. If you have a favorite, send us a suggestion to email@example.com.

TRANSFORMATION is a documentary about a group of transgender teens and young adults struggling to find the resources, safety, and confidence to express their gender identity. With 45% of young transgender people having reportedly attempted suicide in the United States alone, non-binary stylist Madin Lopez has made it their business to provide life-altering, gender-affirming makeovers. Afterwards, these individuals are hopefully able to be their true and best selves, looking on the outside how they’ve always felt on the inside.
