Resources for finding library information about LBGTQ rights and same-sex marriage

Topic page


Acronym that stands for ‘lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender’. This has been variously expanded to include Q for queer and A for asexual. It partly signals the alliance of people who have been, or are likely to be, discriminated against for their sexual preferences. In LGBT organizations they strategically come together to support each other.
