Happy Pride Month

For PRIDE Month, we want to highlight LGBTQ+ resources both for academics and student life. For starters, Cleveland State has its own LGBTQ+ Student Services webpage, which acts as a one-stop place for both university and community resources for the LGBTQ+ community.

For your research needs, check out our Sexual Orientation & the Law Research Guide. The Michael Schwartz Library has a great database, LGBT Life, which contains all of the content available in that publication as well as full text for other significant LGBT journals, magazines, regional newspapers, and monographs.
