RESOURCES

This is by no means an exhaustive list. We have focused our resources on a wide range of topics and providing information for you to explore, other organizations to call, and resources to read.

Please feel free to look and see what feels more relevant. We are focusing on Greater Boston Area resources, however we do include some national resources and websites. If you feel something is missing please email us at programs@gbpflag.org.

 

We find new resources all the time and are in the process of updating our resource directory, so if you cannot find what you are looking for, you can contact the office at info@gbpflag.org and we may be able to help direct you towards additional resources. You can also try joining one of our 15+ support groups, where resources and experiences are shared!
