Your LGBTQ Resource Guide to the Treasure Valley
The LGBT community has been a growing culture with more and more acceptance coming from the general community. However, there are still many people in the LGBT community who face discrimination on a daily basis. While rights are being fought for all over the world, many countries and states are still unwilling to grant rights to the community. In order to better the rights and lives of LGBT members, the community must be able to stick together for support of one another. This website is an educational and resource guide that people new and old to the LGBT community can use to learn more and find support.
