Queer Reads

Queer Reads Logo


Queer Reads is a space for the Texas Tech community to explore texts and topics related to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) community. Queer Reads seeks to foster a climate that is conducive to the academic, social, and cultural needs and interests of LGBTQIA and ally folks at Tech. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate. The Office of LGBTQIA Education & Engagement provides the books for participants.

Why Should I Participate?

  • Participants get to read and discuss LGBTQIA literature outside of a classroom setting.
  • Participants make connections with others who have similar interests in LGBTQIA books and articles.

What is Expected of Participants?

  • Attend reading group meetings twice per month (except when otherwise indicated).
  • Provide feedback about the program to the group leaders.


It's not too late to join Queer Reads! Email Office administrator Stephen Chao if you are interested in the group.
