In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, we've created a resource guide for folks to educate themselves (and others) and how to support the movement.

Below, we've listed books you can read, films and shows to watch, and Black LGBTQ+ and trans-based organizations and funds you can donate to. This is by no mean a comprehensive list of how you can educate yourself and help, but consider it a jumping off point if you're unsure where to start.
