Introduction to Sexuality Studies

Sexuality studies is an emerging, rapidly-growing field of scholarship.  The sources listed in this guide offer an entry point to resources that focus primarily on various aspects of sexuality studies, including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) studies, queer theory, human sexuality, and sex work. However, because this is an interdisciplinary area of research, relevant materials can be found in a wide range of reference sources.
