What is queer media?

Welcome to Reading the Rainbow!

Here at Ohio Wesleyan University, we students have collaborated to create a lib guide for media with queer characters, themes, and authors. The works we have selected to share have varying focuses on intersectionalities between race, gender, class, sexuality, culture, and more.

Our goal is to present a variety of texts, films, and other media that focus on queer themes through a global lens. Our guide includes selections by queer and non-queer authors and content creators, telling the honest stories of queer characters and the way their identities intersect. We are constantly seeking a better understanding of this rapidly evolving genre of literature, focusing especially on texts and media beyond the traditional white, first-world canon.

We hope you enjoy reading the rainbow!
