Covid-19 Resource Hub

March 20th, 2020

We believe that the antidote to fear is not despondency or self-isolation, not anger or blame, but rather love and connection, shared purpose and collective action. By standing together and ensuring that each and every LGBTQ Virginian has the resources and information they need, we can and will prevail through this time.

To that end, we have created this COVID-19 Resource Hub that lists a range of online resources including information about healthcare, employment, mutual aid, and food access. While we have not worked with or vetted each organization, effort, or campaign listed, we are excited to promote resources and inclusive spaces for LGBTQ+ people. Please do your own research before providing any organization with your personal information or resources.

We will continue to update this page as we become aware of additional services available to the LGBTQ community in Virginia. Please share additional resources with us by simply completing this form
