Supporting your LGBTQIA+ family and friends is so much more than rainbow flags and colorful parades. It is also about recognizing and remembering the struggles that the LGBTQIA+ community have faced to achieve equal justice and opportunities. There are a number of local, regional and national organizations that advocate and provide a variety of services. These groups do everything from fighting for LGBTQIA+ rights and offering health services, to providing educational programs and managing emergency helplines.
