The goal of QueerBio.com is to be the definitive online biographical reference source for the international LGBTQ community. Its database lists over 7,500 contemporary and historical figures who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer, and includes artists, sports figures, politicians, entertainers, business leaders, academics, activists, and more. The database is widely international in scope and is an ideal source for research and analysis with full search and sort functionality.

The mission is to inspire, educate, and motivate all generations of LGBTQ individuals and others through a collective knowledge of this international community.


Managing Editors: Mark S. Bonham, Connie Bonello, Gordon Dunbar

LGBTQ LIBRARIANS AND ARCHIVISTS

Librarians & Archivists

Libraries and archives are vital repositories of information and resources on the history and needs of a community.

In the early years LGBTQ collections tend to be locally focused and organized. However, as the rights of the LGBTQ community become entrenched, national cultural and educational institutions and organizations develop separate task forces, staff groups, catalogues, exhibitions, collections, and repositories focused specifically on LGBTQ material.

We have identified a number of LGBTQ individuals who work within libraries and archives. See the complete list HERE
