LGBTQ+ resources for the parks and beyond

Here at the Parks Conservancy, we believe in the power of nature, public lands and the history of resistance to inspire and educate. At your leisure, peruse through our curated resources to better understand Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer+ (LGBTQ) history, how to be a better ally in the parks and beyond, and much more.  

If you know of other helpful books, articles, videos, or guides that you think should be added to this list, please let us know at

For materials related to combatting racism in the parks and beyond, check out our Anti-Racism and Social Justice Resources.
