Reading about LGBT+ lives in February and beyond…

As LGBT+ History Month comes to an end, we want to highlight some of the books chosen by the City community to celebrate and honour LGBT+ lives.

You recommended these titles through our Liberating CityLibrary scheme.

So far, you’ve recommended page-turning memoirs such as Firebird by Mark Doty and We Have Always Been Here by Samra Habib.

Illuminating investigations like Out of Time: The Queer Politics of Postcoloniality by Rahul Rao and The Glamour Boys by Christopher Bryant.

And even the children’s novel George by Alex Gino.

But although February is over, it doesn’t mean we stop reading about LGBT+ lives. Liberating CityLibrary accepts book suggestions year-round from staff and students. These books are then always available for you to borrow through CityLibrary.

Did you read something great this LGBT+ History Month that we’re lacking in the library? Recommend it to us!

Please see the full selection of LGBT+ titles purchased through Liberating CityLibrary below, and you can catch up with all the new additions chosen by you in our handy monthly round-ups.
