HQ76.3/New England:
Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Librarians and Library Workers

Who Are We?

HQ76.3/New England is a social/professional organization of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people working in libraries in New England. We have been around since early 1993. Aside from our frequent potluck meetings and annual march in Boston's Gay Pride, we have sponsored readings, held fundraising events, produced bibliographies, maintained an increasingly visible presence at OutWrite each year, and served as a valuable source of networking among ourselves and to other gay/lesbian and library-related organizations. In 2001 we became an official section of the New England Library Association.

  We now have our own listserv !

A group of Simmons GLBT students and alums are planning to meet in the Boston area periodically for dinners.

An invitation is extended to other HQ76.3/New England members to come to their upcoming dinners, which will be announced on this site.

Our officers for 2008/2009 are:

Chair - Katie McDonough                    
Program Chair - vacant
Treasurer - Jeff Cronin
Web Manager - John DeSantis
Archivist - Martha Stone

Check out this wonderful gay/lesbian bibliography of books and periodicals set in the Boston area and/or by Boston-based authors.

HQ76.3/New England was a major contributor to the indexing project for Liberating Minds, a groundbreaking anthology about the lives of gay, lesbian and bisexual librarians. Several of our members have essays in this marvelous book.
