Here at Pride Link, we know that finding the resources you need as an LGBTQ+ person in the Upstate can be difficult. Google does not always tell you everything you need to know about whether the resource you need is LGBTQ+ affirming. No one enjoys cold calling places to ask and risk the hurt from the uninformed person on the other end of the phone. That’s why we provide resources compiled by us, by our partner LGBTQ+ organizations, and by providers we trust.

Trans In The South Guide
