New Interdisciplinary Research Guide: LGBTQIQ Studies

logo, LGBTQIQ at the GSU LibraryOur new research guide, LGBTQIQ Studies, provides comprehensive information about LGBTQIQ (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Queer/Intersex/Questioning) resources in the GSU Library, from books and articles to films and television shows, to oral histories with local LGBTQIQ activists and other unique materials held in GSU’s Special Collections. Jointly created by History, African American Studies, and Women’s Studies Librarian Jill Anderson, Sociology Librarian Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh, and Women’s and Gender Archivist Morna Gerrard, this guide is a vital starting point for research on LGBTQIQ issues and for information about local LGBTQIQ community resources.
