A collection of LGBTQ resources for anyone who may need them. What did we miss? What resources do you use? We’re always looking for more! Send them to us: lgbtq@missouri.edu

Our Library

MU LGBTQ Resource Center is proud to boast of our very own check-out library. We have diverse sections from Biography and Fiction to Coming Out and Bisexuality.

Anyone can come in, create an account, and check out up to 3 books at a time, for a period of two weeks.

Also in our space, we have subscriptions to Out, The Advocate, OP, and Camp Kansas City. We also have a large archive of magazines including Out, The Advocate, OP, Curve, Hero, Girlfriends, and Alternative Family Magazine.  Magazines are not available for check-out, but anyone is welcome to come in during open hours and look through any and all of them. *Really good for historical research projects.

If you are faculty or staff, we also have educational DVDs available to check out for screening. Please email lgbtq@missouri.edu for more information on checking out DVDs. Students and the community are welcome to come into the space and watch our DVDs in the lounge. Some of our titles include: Trans, Toilet Training, Before Stonewall, After Stonewalland Venus Boyz, among other titles.

Our library is completely made up of books donated to us. If you’d like to donate a book (or two or fifty) to us, not only would you be helping strengthen the resources for our campus and community, but we’ll proudly display your name in the front with a bookplate stating your generous donation.

Check back soon for a link to our Amazon Wish List. If you have a book suggestion for us, please email lgbtq@missouri.edu.
