Queer Support Library

We provide a resource library with characters that cover the spectrum of queer identities in order to provide students with media choices that they can relate to. In addition we have a diverse selection of nonfiction books and documentaries. Our library is located at the OUSA Student Support Centre,
5 Ethel Benjamin Place, from 9am to 4.30 pm weekdays. All items are free for students, and we have a koha box for staff and community members.

'Queer' is a term used to describe the many variations of sexual attraction and sex/gender identity, including intersex, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, asexual, fa'afafine, takatapui, lesbian, bisexual and gay. Although it may not be the preferred term for everyone, it is used to challenge binary representations of sexuality, sex, and gender.
