Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

A guide to highlight useful information resources relating to EDI themes. We hope it will promote awareness and discussion, broaden horizons, and challenge us all.


LGBTQA+ Equality

In this section, you'll find information resources relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer themes. The resources include books, films, archives, oral histories and social media, and they examine LGBTQ themes from many perspectives, including history, society, politics, culture, literature, and more. 

We hope you find the resources here and on our reading list informative and interesting, and as always, we welcome your suggestions for books and other resources to include.
