Resources to help.

Queerness, for us, means any person falling underneath the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and adjacent communities.

Below are links for queer people, parents of queer youth, those in difficult situations and folks who would like more community connection for the 2SLGBTQIA+ and ally population.  This list is always growing;  click the drop-downs to learn more.

The G, a part of Fort Lewis College focuses on events for the students at Fort Lewis, but also educating the public surrounding the school - all while inviting allies and supporters to see whaat the LGBTQ students have been working on.  The G has put on art showcases, drag shows, etc, while also providing support across communities, safe genderqueer spaces, and exclusively queer events.   They put themselves at the forefront of queer education in the area, and we love them for it.

Oh, Planned Parenthood.  We love you.  Free HIV testing, education, and resources.  Gender-affirming healthcare.  Harm reduction services like fentanyl testing strips and safe-sex-before-and-after-care.  Thank you PPDGO!

This list is offered through Durango, Colorado's own tourism website.  Not all businesses have been thoroughly checked, so please visit carefully.  The Alliance is working on an exhaustive list of businesses who have passed Ally Business Training programs - we'll keep you posted!

The Hive offers art, music, and skate lessons while facilitating a sober conscious space for kids and teens to be themselves.  Utilizing their space for all types of creative endeavors, we consider The Hive to be a community pillar.  Punk shows, comedy, drag, and indoor skating, you could say they have fun.

Do you vape, bro? Lots of us too.  We don't necessarily love it, either.  Did you know LGBTQ+ individuals are targeted much more aggressively in tobacco and alcohol advertising?  Learn more about quitting tobacco, its effects on the queer community, and creating healthier coping skills. 

We know, we know, two links... Well, tobacco use runs rampant within the LGBTQIA+ communities.  We want to stop it.  But how?  Learning how it started, why vulnerable communities are targeted, and arming ourselves with knowledge, that's how.  Together we can learn how to quit tobacco products.   

Sexual Assault Services Organization 24 Hour hotline • 970-247-5400; Confidential, anonymous services.  SASO provides advocacy through those in need of resources surrounding S/A.  Support groups, cultural outreach, and well researched information on the facts vs myths of sexual assault can be found here.

Sasha's Rainbow of Hope provides quality connections with the queer population in Durango.  Affiliated with the Alphabet Mafia, both of these organizations are hard at work to provide events, culture and friendship throughout Northern New Mexico and beyond.  

The Alphabet Mafia, founded in 2023, works in conjunction with Sasha's Rainbow of Hope in providing quality events with a focus on sobriety, connection, and gratitude in Farmington, NM.  From movie nights to volleyball meet-ups, the Alphabet Mafia is hard at work in connecting rural queer community members.

Oak Tree Youth Resources has worked with hundreds of youth who cannot live at home due to many reasons, such as parental substance abuse, neglect, turning age 18, or youth pregnancy.  Oak Tree supports youth with their basic needs, education, employment, and housing instability.  They work to make a difference for the youth in the SouthWest.

This one is just for fun.  It is one crouton, for you, our friend.  Enjoy.
