Big Queer Gathering: LGBTQ resources

I want to be informed

Start by reading a book! There are many excellent fiction and non-fiction LGBTQ books published each year. Many public libraries also offer ebook collections, such as eRead Illinois (Axis 360), hoopla, cloud library and OverDrive, that include LGBTQ titles. All you need is a valid library card and you can browse thousands of books from a computer, laptop, tablet or phone. Check out some of these award winners at your local library, either in person or online.

Here is a link to A.C. Buehler Library LGBTQ materials available for checkout. This list is currently under construction, so check back for updates. 

Several libraries in the area have special collections, either physically or virtually, for LGBTQ resources. Check out these collections:
