The CC’s Resource Binders provide intro to in depth education on a variety of topics and identities within LGBTQ+ communities and include overviews/general information, personal narratives, allyship action tips, academic articles, affiliated organizations’ information, and other resources. They do not include all of the information on their topics and should not be considered the definitive word, rather they a good starting point for exploration and education.
The asexuality binder includes an overview of identities on the asexual spectrum, including asexuality, demisexuality, aromanticism, gray-a, and more. There is information about AVEN (Asexuality Visibility and Education Network) along with other resources and perspectives.
Disability & Queerness
The purpose of the disability & queerness binder is to educate LGBTQ+ people and their allies of all abilities on how the queer community intersects with disability. Included in this binder is information on a range of experiences of physical, sensory, and mental impairments, and information on how to practice allyship to these communities. See our Disability page for more.
