LGBT History Month – share your recommended reads

January 31st, 2020

The theme for this year’s LGBT History Month is ‘Poetry, Prose and Plays’ and University of Nottingham Libraries want to work with you to continue to diversify our collections, making libraries a more inclusive and welcoming space for everyone.

Do you have a favourite book that explores the diversity of the LGBT experience and community? Share it with Libraries before Saturday 29 February to help build a reading list that explores LGBT history and culture. Any suggested titles not currently in our library collections will be considered for purchase.
