On Display: Out in the Stacks: LGBTQ Authors, Characters, and Topics

national_coming_out_dayDid you know that October 11 is National Coming Out Day? It marks the anniversary of the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights (learn more about the history of the day here). Here at the library, we’re recognizing the day by kicking off a new display, Out in the Stacks. The library’s collections include a wealth of LGBTQ-related information; we’ve hand-picked an array of books, audiobooks, and DVDs that spans fiction, history, biography, and more. Rediscover classics like The Times of Harvey Milk or Rubyfruit Jungle, or delve deeper into topics with books like Transgender 101 and The Lavender Locker Room.

Come by the library to check out the display or take a look at the Pinterest board (which may include some items that aren’t on the display because they’re on reserve for a course). If you don’t see what you’re looking for, come ask at the reference desk!
