LGBTQIA Pride Month

The Pratt Manhattan Campus Library presents an exhibit celebrating

LGBTQIA Pride Month!

June, 2013

PMC Library, 4th Floor 

In celebration of Pride Month, the PMC Library would like to showcase some books from our collection, which focus on issues of sexuality, identity and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex and Ally community.

Pride events are held in June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969, which is historically considered to be the birth of the modern LGBT movement. (, 2009)

Publication Date: 2009-11-16
“This accessible and engaging book provides a critical geography of sex and sexuality from the body to the globe…Drawing on a diverse array of historical and contemporary examples, the authors argue convincingly that sexual politics permeate all places and spaces at every level of geographical scale. Thus, they illustrate, sexuality affects the way people live in and interact with space and place, as space and place in turn affect people’s sexuality.”

Call Number: 306.764 T587
ISBN: 9780262017701
Publication Date: 2012-08-17
“Heterosexuality is celebrated…and at the same time taken for granted. And yet, in premodern Europe heterosexuality was perceived as an alternative culture. The practice of heterosexuality may have been standard, but the symbolic primacy of the heterosexual couple was not. Tin maps the emergence of heterosexual culture in Western Europe and the significant resistance to it from feudal lords, church fathers, and the medical profession.” -Back cover

Queer Fiction

Cover Art
The Well of Loneliness - Radclyffe Hall
Call Number: HALL c.2
ISBN: 0385416091
Publication Date: 1990-10-18
A 1928 groundbreaking novel about love between two British women, whose happiness is marred by societal isolation and rejection. Considered an “unutterable putrefaction” and “contagion,” the novel went on trial in England and, despite protest from authors such as Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster, the book was banned until 1949. Since then, it has been continuously in print.

This timeless portrayal of lesbian love has become a classic and its treatment of sexuality and gender continues to inspire study and debate.

“The papers gathered here stem from a program presented at the 1995 ALA Annual Conference. They address such topics as stereotyping within librarianship, the gay purge at the Library of Congress in the 1950s, and how Liberating Minds (1997), a collection of librarians' coming-out stories, was compiled. Five papers take up the history of what is now called the Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Task Force of ALA; four more discuss the role of "lesbigay" (i.e., lesbian, bisexual, and gay male) libraries and archives in preserving "lesbigay" history; and the book's final section presents the experiences of three openly gay librarians.” -From Edward Swanson’s review for Booklist
