Field Notes: If you're looking
for information for and about gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered
people, you've come to a great index! The purpose of these pages
is to help you find useful sites with reputable information.
The Rainbow World Fund is
a GLBT not-for-profit agency that joins other humanitarian aid
programs to provide assistance around the world where help, medical
assistance and food are needed. They are staffed by volunteers,
receive operational funding through grants, 100% of your donations
go to those in need.
Gay civil marriage continues to be a major issue in US politics.
Congress has failed to pass legislation to add a ban on same-sex
marriage to the U.S. Constitution. You can read more about same-sex
marriage and the challenges against offering gays & lesbians
equal rights in the Families & Education and Law & Politics sections.
If you have ever wondered why gay people want to marry, or why
many gay men and women feel it is important to be able to
marry? Take a look at Action Wisconsin's
Civil Marriage Equality Website and their brochure: Why
the constitutional bans on Civil Unions and Marriage is Wrong.
New to the gay & lesbian section of CBTL is the page on Statistics.
You'll find links to statistical information on the gay communities
of the United States, Europe, Australia, and other countries.
Looking for information about a specific place? One of the best
resources for local information comes from local newspapers and
community magazines. Click the link to the left titled: Local
Community News for online versions of print magazines that
focus on local gay & lesbian communities all across the world! Whether
you're planning a trip, interested in learning about what's important
to gay communities around the world, you're sure to find these magazines
interesting. The list is limited to magazines providing news & community
information; blue magazines are not listed.
In 1982, Wisconsin became the first state in the nation to pass
legislation to protect the civil rights of our gay, lesbian, bisexual
and transgender citizens. Action Wisconsin has published a guide
to Wisconsin's civil rights law for GLBT people. The law bans discrimination
based on sexual orientation in the workplace, housing, and public
accommodations. You'll find the guide here.
I try to find authoritative sites on a wide variety of topics and
issues. If you come across sites and information you feel I have
missed, please do contact me.
