I am often asked for advice on how to stay informed about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues, local, national and international news, how to keep up with politics and recommendations for mainstream and alternative media sources. I have put together a list of resources that I have found of use to stay informed and to research topics of interest.

This list is by no means exhaustive. I am a proud liberal so I admit this list has a middle of the road to liberal bias (you won’t find links for Log Cabin Republicans, FOX News, Rush Limbaugh or the National Review here). I am not apologizing, mind you, just being upfront about it. I review these links several times each year as some change or go out of use.

If you have any links to organizations, media sources, blogs, etc. that you think I might want to add, please feel free to email me your recommended links at and I will be glad to check them out and consider adding them.
