I am not only a staunch advocate for LGBT rights in general, but also as they apply to the LEP community. As such, I will continue to update this page with relevant LGBTQ resources!
- Allied Linguists for LGBTQ Language Access
The Facebook page I started for what I hope will become an organization dedicated to its namesake!
- Call me Latine.
Inspired by a viral post James Lee wrote about how he self-identifies as Latine (and not Latinx), this website delves into everything Latine and gender-neutral Spanish! Versión en español disponible aquí.
- NCIHC’s LGBTQIA Resources Page
The National Council on Interpreting in Healthcare (NCIHC) has a fantastic page of LGBTQ resources pertaining to interpreting.
- Queer-Friendly Interpreters & Translators
This group is a SAFE SPACE for asking questions and sharing advice regarding queer/LGBTQIA+ -related questions regarding linguistics and the ethics of interpretation/translation. Make sure to answer all screening questions before joining or your membership will not be approved.
Mental Health Resources
- LGBTQ Addiction Resources
From the page: “some groups are more at risk to fall victim to drug and/or alcohol addiction than others. Unfortunately, this is true for the LGBTQ community. This is mainly because of the mental health disorders that develop in this community as a result of abuse, discrimination, rejection and ostracism that they undergo. The good news, however, is that many resources are available to help members of this community conquer substance abuse.”
