LGBT+ Resources: Home

A selection of resources for research on LGBT+ topics


Booth Library has a wide array of resources for research into LGBT+ topics. This guide is a general purpose guide for those wishing to research primarily LGBT+ populations, read LGBT+ voices, or seeking resources for Queer Theory. It is broken down into finding books, articles and online sources. There is also a section for Youth and Young Adult books suitable for younger audiences. 

Queer Theory Texts

There are a few canonical texts in reference to queer theory, that essentially shaped what it is today, these are good readings to create fundimental queer theory arguments from.

General Reference

Finding sources will be covered in more depth on the specific tabs within this guide, but here are a few reference sources to get you started!
