PFLAG Tucson maintains a small library of books and other publications on a spectrum of GLBT issues that we make available for loan.  Although we do not have all of the books listed below, we have many of them.  These are available at our support meetings.  The titles below are linked to's book descriptions (or to another appropriate web page) to give readers more information on what these books cover.  Since PFLAG Tucson formed in 1991 the literature on homosexuality and transgender issues has exploded and is far vaster and most complete than what we have in our library and what is listed below.  For those seeking more up-to-date information it is well worth doing more research beyond the list we provide.
