The Lincoln LGBTQ+ Resource Center, supported through a Jesuit Association of Student Personnel Administrators (JASPA) Innovation Grant, is holding a Queer Book Fair on February 8th in the Hemmingson Rotunda! This event will feature books from the Lincoln Center's circulating collection, including titles by queer authors on a wide spectrum of issues and topics, and books banned for their queer content.

How to Use this Guide

This guide is intended to help people find copies of books from the Queer Book Fair for their own reading and use. Books have been separated into genres and sub-genres, and each page contains a tab with links to find books at Gonzaga's Foley Library, at Spokane local bookstore Auntie's, or on Amazon.

The list of titles represent only a small number of the books focused on Queer topics that the Lincoln Center, Foley Library, Auntie's, or Amazon offer. If you would like help finding out more about these books or others you may be interested in, please feel free to contact Lincoln Center or Foley Library for assistance.

The Lincoln LGBTQ+ Resource Center Collection

The Lincoln LGBTQ+ Resource Center is a hub of resources for folks seeking information about gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and a spectrum of other intersecting topics. The Center's goal is to be a safe, inclusive, and affirming space for all, including any one with a desire to self-educate on queer culture and identity.

Located at Hemmingson 213 (second floor), the Center provides a place for work and study, for conversation and collaboration, and more. The growing book collection housed in the office is one of the many ways the Center serves Gonzaga students and the campus community. The book collection is available for students to read in the Center or borrow for a period of time, and contains books on a wide variety of topics relating to identity, sexuality, and gender.

Check out their LibraryThing page for a list of their whole collection! Or stop in to the Center to browse through titles in person.
