Sports and Recreation

This page contains a selection of resources and recommended research strategies related to the LGBTQ+ sports and recreation.

The Library of Congress has an extensive collection of material related to sports and recreation, both in historical and contemporary contexts. The Library collects materials in all formats, languages, and time periods that explore a broad range of subjects including works related to or about sports in general, specific sports or movements within sports, and specific athletes. These works generally class in GV but can be found scattered throughout the subject areas of the entire Library of Congress classification system.

The subscription resources marked with a padlock are available to researchers on-site at the Library of Congress. If you are unable to visit the Library, you may be able to access these resources through your local public or academic library.
