LGBT Thought and Culture contains key works and archival documentation of LGBT political and social movements beginning in the 20th century. The collection includes materials ranging from texts, letters, periodicals, speeches, interviews and ephemera, and covers the political evolution of gay rights through memoirs, biographies, poetry and works of fiction. Together these texts and images illuminate the lives of lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual individuals and their communities.
Includes material from the Kinsey Institute Archive, Windy City Media Group, The National Archives (UK), and Flinders University. This is an interdisciplinary resource, useful for cultural studies, history, women's and gender studies, political science, anthropology, religious studies, American studies, social theory, sociology, and literature.
Upon completion the collection will contain about 150,000 pages.
