• Libraries and Collections

    The usual outreach ideas can be modified such as queer book clubs or celebrating LGBT history month in October. Partnerships with local LGBT libraries and community centers can get the library more visibility in the queer community. But, in the end, representation begins on the bookshelf.

  • Mission Statement

    These resources have been collected to assist librarians in serving their queer patrons better. This website should be regarded as a starting ground for wider research.

  • Publishers

    This index was created to assist readers and librarians to find LGBT and LGBT-friendly publishers by genre.

  • Reader’s Advisory

    Reference service reform should go hand in hand with developing LGBT outreach programs such a poetry groups, author chats, book clubs, and partnerships with local and national LGBT organizations. Start small; go big.
