Recommended Reading: October: LGBTQIA+ History

Highline College's librarians recommend materials from the library collection on a wide variety of topics.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer History Month

"October. LGBT History Month was created in 1994 by Rodney Wilson, a high school history teacher in Missouri. In 1995, a resolution passed by the General Assembly of the National Education Association included LGBT History Month within a list of commemorative months. October was selected to coincide with National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11), which was already established, and the anniversary of the first march on Washington for gay and lesbian rights in 1979."  From: Why Do We Celebrate Pride Month in June and LGBT History Month in October?, University of Central Florida 

The Highline College Library presents books, ebooks, media, and web sites about LGBTQ+ history.
