Welcome to the Research Guide for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) resources. The Delgado Libraries collection contains books, periodicals, and electronic access to research databases and to ebooks for all of our students. This guide reflects the needs of LGBTQ+ students and faculty by supporting the curriculum and research into LGBTQ+ topics.
What does LGBTQ+ mean?
It's a shorthand or umbrella term for all folks who have a non-normative (or queer) gender or sexuality. There are many different initialisms people prefer. LGBTQ is Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer and/or Questioning, and sometimes people add a + at the end in an effort to be more inclusive. (Source)
