Social Justice Resources: LGBTQ Stories

scrabble tiles LGBQT, rainbow background

This tab is a place to amplify LGBTQ stories and voices. It is a place to learn and understand the role that our society has played in perpetuating LGBTQ-phobias. Ultimately, this is a space to work to prevent hate from continuing.


This LibGuide was created for those who wish to educate themselves through books, videos, and other resources on important social justice issues, and the viewpoints of marginalized populations. While the GHC library staff and faculty have made a substantial effort to provide numerous resources, this is not a comprehensive guide. If there are resources you consider irrelevant, or resources that were left out that you feel should be included, please contact us:
