LGBTQ+ Resource List

06/30/2020

This month - June 2020 - marks the 50th anniversary of the annual LGBTQ+ Pride march. Pride month is not only a celebration, but a time to reflect on how far we’ve come and how far we have left to go regarding liberation for the LGBTQ+ community and for all. 
 
Similar to the previously published section of scholarly writing and resources on race and society, we asked members of the ACLS community to share resources on LGBTQ+ liberation consisting of existing research, published works, podcasts, and any other mediums that can help in education for reflection and action.
 
If you have a favorite resource - yours or another's – on LGBTQ+ topics, history, or reading guides, etc., please share your contributions, or any questions or comments, with us at news@acls.org
