Multicultural Resources

Welcome to ALGBTIC’s Multicultural Resources page. The purpose of this page is to provide culturally diverse LGBT-affirmative resources to counseling professionals and educators, community organizations, LGBT individuals, their families and their allies.

The Multicultural Committee of ALGBTIC (Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues in Counseling) is comprised of clinical practitioners, educators, counseling students, and community members who are working together to address culture-specific interests of LGBT individuals including race/ethnicity, aging, disability, and religion/spirituality.

Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)
http://www.glaad.org/index.php
From the website: “Because of GLAAD's work, gay and lesbian stories and issues are covered in national and local news publications, in film and on television. Negative and imbalanced portrayals of the community have decreased while lesbians and gay men have been increasingly incorporated in nearly every type of media platform - from soap operas to cartoon strips. But there's a lot of work yet to do. Transgender and bisexual representations, representations of the full spectrum of diversity of our community, and accurate representations of our relationships are but a few areas where GLAAD continues to focus resources and attention. In step with today's always-changing media landscape, GLAAD continues to provide journalists and media professionals with timely, inclusive and authoritative resources, expanding the representation of our community one story at a time through an effective, forceful mix of advocacy, education and visibility.”

We are committed to the principle that access to social and economic resources is a fundamental right, and we work to create social and economic equity through grassroots organizing, public education, advocacy and research. We do this work because although poor queers have always been a part of both the gay rights and economic justice movements, they have been, and continue to be, largely invisible in both movements. This work will always be informed by the lived experiences and expressed needs of queer people in poverty.”
