LGBTQ Resources

Magnum Arts is a firm and proud supporter of the LGBTQ community, a community under unprecedented attack, facing discrimination, bullying and repression. The following links are great resources for support and advocacy

Be A Safe Space For A Group Under Attack

The Trevor Project – The Trevor Project is the leading suicide prevention and crisis intervention nonprofit organization for LGBTQ+ young people. They provide information & support to LGBTQ+ 
young people 24/7, all year round

Cerebral Palsy Support – If you are the parent of an LGBTQ child with cerebral palsy the world can seen especially challenging. This group has your back, with resources, support and helpful information

Other Great Links

BoingBoing – one of the best blogs on the Internet. I read it every morning; it’s like breakfast for your head

Stupid Comics – A site dedicated to lampooning the dumbest, lamest and most bizarre comics, to hilarious effect

Ars Technica – One of the best technology/consumer-oriented blogs; I read it every day

The ACLU – Because freedom cannot protect itself. The rights you have, you have because they were defended. Make a donation today

Electronic Frontier Foundation – Fighting for our on-line rights against increasingly powerful forces bent on taking them away. Follow them, support their mission

Digital Comics Museum – Tons of vintage comics, of all genres, free for the reading (and downloading!)

SOMA FM – Need some new music while you create? This is an awesome commercial-free Internet radio station, with over twenty-five channels, and it’s FREE! – This is an awesome site with hundreds of fonts in all styles, all absolutely free for the downloading. A great resource for your next graphics project

JustSketchMe – THIS is a resource I use all the time: a pose reference site that gives you control over every part of the pose model, even the individual fingers. You can rotate the figures to any angle or height you need to get just the right view, then download the picture for drawing reference. I highly recommend this resource!
