for the lgbtqia+ community

Our gender and sexuality are key aspects of our identities that can affect all facets of our well-being. When they differ from our dominant culture’s assumption of cisgendered heterosexuality, we can face unique challenges that aren’t spoken to by traditional wisdom on well-being, especially around the tension between authenticity and security, and the sacrifice of the one for the other. But our experiences also let us bring unique vibrancy and breadth to our communities, from celebrating self-acceptance to championing compassion and inclusion to creating new vocabularies to discuss the full depths of being human.

Here we’ve collected wisdom on a wide range of topics through the unique lens of being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
