Outright regularly gets asked for information about queer-positive resources throughout the state. In response, we’ve started gathering information for a resource guide collected through recommendations from youth, community members, databases, conversations with providers, and organizations from all over the state.

Listed providers were asked to describe their experience working with queer youth, their familiarity with people who are trans or questioning identity, and their involvement in the queer community. We do not screen providers exhaustively in other areas of practice, and this list should not be taken as complete endorsement of a provider.  It is a tool meant to connect queer youth and those who care for them to queer friendly practitioners.

The resources included in this guide represent a spectrum of queer competencies, ranging from queer-friendly services to providers that specialize in queer issues. We encourage anyone seeking services to talk with providers to make sure that its a good fit.

This guide is a living document that we want to continue building. We’ve started with resources for mental health providers, but hope to include a variety of services. Let us know if you think someone should be added to the list or feedback on your experiences with listed providers by contacting info@outrightvt.org or 802-865-9677.

Other local  resources can be found at the Pride Center of Vermont and Vermont Diversity Health Project.
