Resource Directory {Gina}

http://www.homorama.com/cgi-bin/homorama   Homorama -very good site that has links to major antiqueer groups as well as links to other issues of queerness.

http://www.hrc.org/Human Rights Campaign, pro-queer advocacy organization.

http://www.hatewatch.org/Hate Watch organization, monitors hate groups.

http://www.qrd.org/Queer Resource Directory, has links to many queer sites.

http://www1.infinet.com/~dionisio/queer/ {Leach}

Political Sites {Minnie}

PRO

1) URL: http://gaylesissues.miningco.com/
Name: Gay/Lesbian Issues - has various gay/lesbian topics and issues such as politics, marriage, work issues, military, family/parenting, etc. Very neatly organized. Has good links, bulletin board, newsletter, chat, events and other neat things on it.

2) URL: http://www.datalounge.com/glaad/glaad.html
Name: The Data Lounge - has news, issues, gossip and a sign-up section. The news deals with current events that are going on in the gay community. The issues have topics such as AIDS/HIV, anti-gay violence and initiative, government policies, gay vote, military, education, etc - which are very informative. The gossip section does not necessarily talk about gay issues, but it provides a welcoming atmosphere for gays in a heterosexual community.

3) URL: http://www.stonewall.org.uk/
Name: Stonewall - has general information (tells about their goal which is to fight for equality), latest news (from their own press office), factsheets (free information about different issues on gays and lesbians, which also includes many statistics), immigration and parenting group, and different ways to get in touch with them. This site is neatly organized and useful for research.

ANTI

1) URL: http://www.melvig.org/mel/MELVIG.HTM
Name: STRAIGHT - is an organization against homosexuality based on religious aspects. This site lists Vol.1 No.1-6, which include various articles supporting Christian perspectives against homosexuality. In No.1, it tells about the goal of the organization, boycott issues against gay groups in Colorado, and defends the idea of the death penalty for gays. No.2 includes a comparison of the politically and biblically correct sexuality. No.3 touches on helping and curing homosexuality. No. 4 talks against gay rights. No. 5 includes an article against homosexuals in the military. No. 6 talks mostly about God's laws. I'm not sure if this is an official site, but anti-gay sites (Christian ones) usually use the Bible and other sources from religious figures to legitimatize their criticism of homosexuals.

2) URL: http://www.christiangallery.com/creator.html
NO LONGER EXISTS
Name: the Creator's Rights Party - has a section that is anti-abortion/pro-life, criticizes of Republicans (and the government in general), appraises the idea of arresting homosexuals (anti-gay). Does not cover much of gay issues, rather condemns the corrupted Christians in politics today.

3) URL: http://www.messiah.edu/hpages/facstaff/chase/h/index.htm
Name: Christian Resources about Homosexuality and AIDS - is aimed toward homosexuals who want to change their sexuality. Talks about "gay to straight" issues and events, articles on homosexuality from a Christian perspective, testimonies, books, organizations that help homosexuals, AIDS help, etc. This site has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere that advocates helping (not condemning) homosexuality. Although it is still anti-gay, it's not as vicious and hateful like other sites.

Hate Crimes {Sophia}

HATE CRIMES STATISTICS:

http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hatecm.htm#bias
Check table 2. It's a table of the number of incidents, offenses, victims, and offenders by bias motivation. It breaks down all the hate crime statistics by motivation. Sexual orientation as a motivation for a hate crime is calculated at being 13% of all hate crimes, and this does not include the multiple motivation crimes. 59% of all offenders were found to be Caucasian.

PRO-QUEER:

http://tri.org/ Triangle Foundation
This was the most helpful site that has a lot of links to other useful sites that are pro-queer. It also has a site on Matthew Shepard. There is a section of the web that is about violence, and hate crimes.

http://www.avp.org/Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project
This site is wholly dedicated to anti-queer violence. It lets you know how to get involved by linking you to:

http://www.glaa.org/
which is the Gay and Lesbian Activist Alliance. This site has newspaper articles of specific hate crimes that have been committed against queers.

ANTI-QUEER:

All of these sites are predominantly White, Christian and it seems masculine sites. They are all very patriotic, and definitely have their own views on what makes a good "American." They try to scare people into thinking that all homosexuals are perverts, pedophiles, and definitely not good Christians. The most interesting thing about all these anti-queer sites are their emphasis on the "American" life, the site are decorated by American flags and eagles, anything and everything patriotic. Indicating to people that if they do not hold similar beliefs then they are un-American.

http://www.afa.net/ American Family Association
You have to even love the name of this site. The American Family Association. It already has the emphasis on the "American Family," which they thoroughly define.

http://www.frc.org/ Family Research Council
This site actually is a place that those that are "reversed-discriminated" against (which isn't possible.. but they're crazy anyhow) should contact this group. They actually state: "..if you have faced threats or discrimination because of your 'pro-family' principles or religious beliefs, please contact Family Research Council..." They also have a link to:

http://www.narth.com/ which is the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuals. They still fully believe and teach others that homosexuality is still a disease that can be treated.

http://www.thundernet.org/ American Guardian
The American Guardian (i think it was the American guardian) actually has a section on the side of the web page that allows you to pick a topic and the organization's thought on this topic appears before you. Their views on homosexuals are full of myth and lies.

Christian/Family Values Groups {Gina}

http://www.christiangallery.com/arstfags.htm
NO LONGER EXISTS
Christian Gallery run by Neal Horsely contains a web page entitled "The Nuremberg Files", which is devoted to tracking and publishing information on abortion providers. Also has opinion about gays: "Arresting homosexuals for their own good."
