Black Queer Studies Collection

The Black Queer Studies Collection, which is designated digitally through notes in library catalog records, features, promotes and increases the discoverability of the UT Libraries’ unique holdings in the area of African and African Diasporic Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Studies.  

The Black Queer Studies Collection was founded in 2009, and today contains hundreds of books, ebooks, journals, films, and other materials. Books and media from the collection are held by various branches including the Perry-Castañeda Library, the Benson Latin American Collection, the Fine Arts Library, as well as digital materials. ​ 

The Black Queer Studies Collection is a groundbreaking project in librarianship addressing standard obstacles posed by the Library of Congress Subject Headings and information retrieval systems to locating materials by and about Black Diasporic LGBTQ people.
