LGBT Studies: LGBT Thought and Culture, & LGBT Studies in Video



LGBT Thought and Culture is an online resource hosting books, periodicals, and archival materials documenting LGBT political, social and cultural movements throughout the twentieth century and into the present day. The collection includes documents ranging from letters, speeches, interviews, and ephemera covering the political evolution of gay rights as well as memoirs, biographies, poetry, letters and works of fiction that illuminate the lives of lesbians, gays, transgendered, and bisexual individuals and the community.

This release features a first selection of materials collected by activist and publisher Tracy Baim from the mid-1980s through the mid-2000s,  the Magnus Hirschfeld collection from the Kinsey Institute, periodicals such as En la Vida and BLACKlines, select rare works from notable LGBT publishers including Alyson Books and Cleis Press, as well as mainstream trade and university publishers. It is also seeking to represent the major winners of both the Stonewall Book Awards and Lambda Literary Awards, many of which are no longer in print.  Future releases will comprise more archival materials and periodicals from several repositories worldwide to enhance the regional and international representation.
