Lavender is an LGBTQ+ inclusive website that's main parts are the Q+A forum page and the Resources page. Lavender features a monthly spotlight for a person in the LGBTQ+ community that is doing great things and representing their community well. Our website is called Lavender because of the term "Lavender Linguistics" which is the way people in the LBGTQ+ community communicate using slang, pronunciations, and body language.
There is a lack of centralized resources for and a space for discussion of LGBT+ topics.
Lavender provides a list of resources related to a variety of LGBT+ topics, as well as a safe space for LGBT+ individuals to ask for advice within the community.
We had trouble using Django to create our q and a page; we overcame this roadblock by researching our problems and surveying different webpages and forums to see which solutions best suited our needs.
