MLS Thesis Abstract:
An historic trait of coming out as a lesbian and then forming an identity of a ‘lesbian of color’ are the seeking out of like voices and stories. Librarians who hold an understanding of the lesbian of color coming out process as well as the fluidity of language in Queer Studies will be better equipped to service lesbian of color patrons. This paper holds three tools for reference librarians: A literature review outlining the history of lesbian of color identity formation, a bibliography with interdisciplinary humanities reference annotations that source lesbians of color in literature, film, performance art, and identity, and a model of content analysis that is strategic for finding applicable lesbian of color sources in multiple formats.
