LGBT Resources

With the controversy in Indiana over State Bill 344, there’s never been a better time to learn more about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues, perspectives, and resources.

Numerous databases have insightful and authoritative articles on any LGBT issue or interest. But several databases are even more useful, such as LGBT Studies, which includes material like films, documentaries, interviews, and archival video that explore every facet of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, including cultural, social and political changes through history. Another great choice is … Continued
