This guide recommends resources for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, those interested in learning more about the history of and ongoing discrimination against LGBTQIA+ individuals, and those completing LGBTQIA+ studies coursework at FIT.


Welcome to our LGBTQIA Guide. This guide is meant to serve a few functions. First, if you are taking one of the courses in FIT's LGBTQIA Minor or are otherwise doing research related to LGBTQIA community members and the topics that impact them, this guide highlights the best resources for that research both at FIT and beyond. Second, this guide is a resource for those interested in learning more about LGBTQIA communities, identities, and histories. If you have any questions on materials in this guide or elsewhere in the FIT Library's materials, please feel free to contact us through Ask the Library
