We know that supporting the LGBTQIA+ community isn’t just limited to Pride month. We want to facilitate ongoing education and awareness.
So we’ve asked some of the LGBTQIA+ community on Depop to share resources and causes they care about. Read. Watch. Donate. Let’s carry on supporting the marginalised and underrepresented.
LGBTQIA+ Useful Resources
We chatted to 6 of our LGBTQIA+ sellers about the key causes, collectives, charities and cultural resources that are so important for the community.
Donate: The BFTA Collective
The BFTA Collective works to support specifically Black Trans-femme individuals suffering from any type of violence, as well as sheltering homeless Trans-femmes. This is an especially important cause because it’s focused on solely benefiting a targeted group of people.
Donate: The Trevor Project
The Trevor Project, aside from being an outstanding organisation, also just holds a special place in my heart. It was actually the first resource I ever looked to online about transitioning. They have 24/7 hotlines or – one on one private messaging if preferred – for a huge variety of individual circumstances.
Seller and storyteller
Queer nonbinary femme
I really love when I get their newsletter in my inbox, there’s always a headline that connects to some part of myself or someone in the community who I care about. I love that they breach issues in an engaging and inventive way.
Donate: Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project
This project does crucial community building work for the folx with all of these intersecting identities and ensures they’re able to have their needs met.

@lgbt_history is an instagram account that documents pivotal moments in LGBTQ+ history. Educating yourself on this history is essential for both LGBTQ+ folk and allies, we must respect the sacrifices that have been made to get where we are now.
Donate: Black LGBTQIA+ Therapy Fund
Direct action and direct donations are two of the most effective ways to instigate change. Donate to crowdfunding pages in your local LGBTQ+ community. This specific page is funding for black LGBTQ+ community members to receive therapy, it’s a great cause. Donate away angels!

Read: LGBTQ+ Prisoner Resource Guide
This guide can connect you or a loved one to resources that aid members of the LGBTQ+ community who are incarcerated (past present, and future). Queer prisoners matter and always will.
Donate: The Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund
The Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund is creating a great program that gives free mental health therapy sessions to Black Trans women and men. It is extremely important that our Black Trans brothers and sisters have access to professional aid during this time.

Watch: Pay it No Mind: The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson
Marsha P. Johnson is a huge inspiration to me, as well as being part of the Stonewall riots she was the mother of taking fashion risks and being unapologetically her!
MindOut is a mental health service that helps improve the wellbeing of LGBTQIA+ communities in the UK. It’s such an important cause!
