Public and school libraries should be a wealth of information for at-risk LGBTQQIA youth. We should be safe havens for them to learn how to deal with their situations. The best first step for librarians to learn how to support these youth is to educate themselves on who they are. The organizations below provide education and workshops on learning how to become effective allies. They also provide lesson plans for elementary  educators and support for administration.
