J.D. David’s Blog, The Cranky Queer, has a wealth of information about Coronavirus. Posts include;

Wikis, Google Docs, and Other Resources

  • QueerCare has created a wiki of resources for providing care in the time of Coronavirus. This resource is particularly useful for mutual aid-based community groups.
  • Another excellent resource is the Database of Localized Resources During COVID-19 Outbreak created by persons unknown. This (US-based) document includes hundreds of inks to governmental information, mutual aid groups, trans/queer support, physical/mental health resources and other sources of support.

Talks and Lectures

  • Colt Meier St. Amand did a recorded livestream on March 24th about responding to Coronavirus as a transgender person.
  • Koncept Kit is a Queer/Trans POC-run organization based in Houston, USA that helps people organize and hold conferences and meetings online. They come highly recommended.
