This guide has been created to highlight the research and study of lesbians. 

  • Lesbian studies is an interdisciplinary field and relevant materials will be found within a wide range of subject sources.
  • More contemporary sources will present the term "lesbian" in combination with gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer, or LGBTQ+. 
  • Older scholarly resources may refer to lesbians as homosexuals, homosexual women, queer women, or gay women.

Lesbian - a woman whose emotional, sexual, and romantic orientations are toward women.
