LGBTQ+ Resources: Research Databases


Search for articles from popular (magazines, newspapers) and scholarly periodicals (academic journals) using the databases below. If you are off campus, you will be asked to log in using your SCCCD credentials (the same username and password you use for Canvas or your school email).


Choose the "Browse People" link ("light bulb icon" near the top right side of the database home page); then using the "Topics" drop-down menu that appears on the left side, select "LGBTQ Figures."

You may also search for biographies by entering the individual's name in the search box on the main page of the database.
