LGBTQ+ Resources: Rainbow Book Month™ - ALA

This guide provides relevant information and direct links to useful databases and available resources for researching LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Studies and topics.

Rainbow Book Month™ is a celebration of the authors and writings that reflect the lives and experiences of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, pansexual, genderqueer, queer, intersex, agender, and asexual community.

As of 2020, GLBT Book Month™ (celebrated by the American Library Association since 2015) has been renamed Rainbow Book Month™, in coordination with the Rainbow Round Table's name change in 2019. Originally established in the early 1990s by The Publishing Triangle as National Lesbian and Gay Book Month, this occasion is an opportunity for book lovers and libraries with the very best in LGBTQIA+ literature. 
Rainbow Book Month™ is an initiative of the American Library Association, and is coordinated through its Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services and the Rainbow Round Table
