Welcome to the LGBTQIA+ Resources Guide!
This is a guide to selected resources relating to LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual and more) issues available at the WSU Libraries or online. It is not intended to be comprehensive. If you need any assistance finding or using any of these sources, please consult a librarian. You can suggest additions to this guide by emailing Alisha Petersen.
Artist iO Tillett Wright has photographed 2,000 people who consider themselves somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum and asked many of them: Can you assign a percentage to how gay or straight you are? Most people, it turns out, consider themselves to exist in the gray areas of sexuality, not 100% gay or straight. Which presents a real problem when it comes to discrimination: Where do you draw the line? ("Filmed at TEDxWomen.")
