Can you expand a little more on what kinds of material you're hoping to find? That might help people make more useful suggestions.

There's some discussion both of Gaia and of some further resources in Devoted to You, edited by Judy Harrow (which has discussion about how to learn more about deities, and then four chapters by four different people, about specific deities. Judy wrote about Gaia.)

Have you tried doing online searches? If so, what have you tried so far? (That way, people can suggest other options.)

When I want a general overview of something, and I'm not sure where else to look, I usually start with Wikipedia and look at their sources and what other resources they link to - here's an article from my website about how to use Wikipedia for this kind of research and learning). 

For Greek deities in specific, Theoi.com has a lot of information from classical Greek texts and other historical resources, and it's usually my first stop.

Oh, I just remembered I was watching The Great Greek Myths on Amazon Prime, and the first episode included stuff about Gaia - I don't know how accurate it is, though, and unfortunately I also don't know if it's available without Amazon Prime.

You could read Hesiod's Theogony. It's the greatest source for Gaia! :)
I pray that religious animosity will end.
