Resources

This page is and will grow as our library of articles and resources for LGBTQ+ young people seeking information and support. From fiction and films to self-help guides and other organisations, we’ll be adding content to help you find sources of information, entertainment and more.

If you’d like to review a book, film, game, TV show, website etc, or you’ve found a great resource you think we should signpost LGBTQ+ young people to, send us an email to info@thekitetrust.org.uk and we’ll share more details of our requirements for posts!
