Supporting LGBTQIA+ Communities

There is a rich history of LGBTQIA+ scholarship, activism, and community-building at Columbia among students, faculty, and staff. University Life has compiled the following resources to help promote greater inclusion and support of LGBTQIA+ students at Columbia. 

The resources below were compiled in partnership with student affairs staff from across the University. Requests to add additional items can be sent to [email protected].

The resources below include off-campus resources that Columbia is neither affiliated with nor explicitly endorses. This list is intended only to inform students of resources available to them in the broader community.


The books listed below are only a small sample of books available from Columbia Libraries on this topic. Please consult with a Columbia reference librarian for additional resources.

Book descriptions are visible when hovering over book covers.
