LGBTQ+ Studies

The research guide for LGBT Studies at CCSF!

People marching in Trans March near Dolores ParkThis guide serves the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies department as a one-stop-shop of the CCSF Library's collection covering research topics found in the curriculum of this program.

Our collections focus on:

  • A wide range of genres: fiction/nonfiction, academic/pleasure, local/national/global authors and topics in LGBTQ+ publishing

  • Topics across several disciplines including health, community work, sexuality, social science, history

  • E-book and print materials are selected based on demand, as well as course modality

  • Local history of LGBTQ+ in San Francisco and the Bay Area

  • Supporting LGBT Studies curriculum course of study and assignments

​​​​​​​Please reach out to the Library subject liaison for any additions, corrections, or suggestions for the resources the CCSF Library can provide to support the program and its curriculum. We are here to help!
