Exclusive Spaces Primer

I want to know more about the theory and practice of exclusive spaces for groups perceived as oppressed or subaltern, as in exclusively gay spaces, exclusively racialized spaces, trans only spaces, women only spaces, etc.
I am specifically looking for:
• Texts that justify/refute the need for and efficacy of exclusive spaces (could be theory-heavy or insightful journalistic pieces, essays, blog posts, etc);
• Your personal, direct, first-hand experience.
If there's some sort of canonical literature about this, I'd love if you could point me in that direction.
[I am not interested in learning more about exclusive spaces for groups in position of power, like exclusively white spaces or spaces for men only, and so on. I am not interested in hear-say or speculative opinion]
