Annotated Bibliography of
Canadian Lesbian Literature

This bibliography, which could more accurately be titled An Annotated Bibliography of Canadian Literature with Lesbian Content, is unique and comprehensive for the time period (1931-2010). I worked on the bibliography between 2000-2010 with a few entries having been contributed by friends for the French-language material. The bibliography was originally intended for librarians doing collection development but also is of interest to students, academics, queer community groups looking for writers to read at a queer literary night and, last but certainly not least, readers.
