The HRC is a never exhausting resource of issues affecting the GLBT population in the United States.
Then, of course, there is the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. Same basic idea as the HRC but with a global outreach.
PlanetOut has decent news. They also have chats and message boards and pride shopping and entertainment catergories that are worth looking through. Not my favourite site, but the favourite of many.
Queer Day is just an amazing resource of the news relating the GLBT community. Even if it was just a tiny snippet in some small town's paper, you can probably find it here.
By [their] simple standards, if you know how to turn on a computer, and you're a woman who loves women... (bi/trans/curious included!!!!) you're a Techno Dyke! (And, if you're looking at this, then you can definitely assume the title.) The site has a little bit of everything, with fantastic forums, and a fun design.
Queer Theory is a listing resource, providing visual and textual resources relating to queer fields.
Rainbow Query is one of the many GLBT search engines. It's a fairly good one.
Queer filter is a listing of GLBT weblogs and personal sites.
PFLAG, or Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays is an amazing support group for... parents and friends of the GLBT community. This is really a wonderful organization. I can't say enough about it.

Anyone else, feel free to add any links that are your favourites and whatnot. This is not meant to be a definitive list by any means, but rather just the start of one to get the ball rolling.

Copied from soliloquy:

Remembered a few...
The National Center for Lesbian Rights is a "national legal resource center with a primary commitment to advancing the rights and safety of lesbians and their families through a program of litigation, public policy advocacy, free legal advice and counseling, and public education." They aren't entirely lesbian-centric though.
GayWebMonkey describes itself as "a fun and irreverent look at what's cool and what's new on the Gay & Lesbian Internet!" I don't really spend enough time there to explain them though, so you'll have to check it out.
If you're interested in starting a family, or already have, Proud Parenting is a great resource. The articles are always worth a read and the community is pretty active.

Some wonderful orginizations:

The National Coalition for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Youth. Lots of resources.

Youth Resource
A project of advocates for GLBTQ youth. I haven't given this site the read through it deserves, but what I've looked over alone makes it worth the visit.

Safe Schools Coalition
"The Safe Schools Coalition offers resources as a starting point for educators, parents/guardians and youth."

More to come later. I really wish other people would take some initiative on this too, though...
