Sometime after graduation I realized I became the beneficiary of a small, but substantial collection of LGBT literature from a student organization that I ran. For years the stack had been kept in a box, which had been handed down to me from the previous organization president, and I always felt somewhat guilty for having them. I tried handing them off to other LGBT organizations at school but no one seemed interested enough.
I’ve skimmed through several of the pages, and I even used some of the titles for a project in my reference class, but I haven’t actually read any of them. Thus, after three and a half years, I’ve decided to embrace them, and fully welcome these wayward titles into the fold.

One thought on “Into the Fold”
Start with And the Band Played On – a riveting book, IMHO.
