Libraries’ Culture Corner Features Gay and Lesbian Themes

Topics relating to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons (GLBTQ), as well as those questioning their sexual orientation, are featured this semester at the UT Libraries’ Culture Corner.

Titles on GLBTQ history, family and parenting, coming out, education, employment, civil rights, and other topics are available for browsing or checkout.

“We chose this topic because we felt there was a need to show that there is more to GLBTQ culture than what we are often shown on tv or the stereotypes that are becoming all too common,” Kawanna Bright, instructional services librarian and Culture Corner curator, said.

Each semester, the Culture Corner showcases books from the libraries’ collections that focuses on a theme related to diversity.

Located just outside the Reference room on the first floor of the John C. Hodges Library, the Culture Corner is a cozy nook that has become a popular study area and meeting place.

The Culture Corner is a project of the UT Libraries’ Diversity Committee.
