LGBT+ History Month

Find inspiration for your next read with our LGBTQIA+ reading list.


LGBTQIA+ reading list - borrow and suggest titles

Every year, we ask staff and students to share their recommendations of works by LGBTQIA+ writers or titles that explore LGBTQIA+ culture and history for inclusion in our reading list and to help us to develop our collections.

In 2020, we purchased 72 of the suggestions, including award-winning fiction, graphic novels, poetry, essay collections, non-fiction titles and more. 

In February 2021, we made many of these titles available as ebooks, allowing the university community to access these titles wherever they are.
