Biographies of GLBT People
The Famous, Soon to be famous, and the Hopeful
(all of them fabulous!)

These lists are not comprehensive, they're not intended to be so. I've focused on listing people who have been important in their work and for whom I've been able to locate a personal website maintained by the individual, a website with great depth and reliability, information from the Gale reference databases, and appropriate links to the materials available for loan from the libraries in the Outagamie-Waupaca and Nicolet Library Systems.

The inclusion of a person in the lists below does not imply that the libraries in the OWLSnet system own materials by and/or about them. These lists and links are primarily for your awareness, and for your study/reading/listening pleasure etc.

Note: to access articles from the Gales databases, you will be prompted for your library card. Your local library must subscribe to these databases for you to have access.)

Key:

About...........materials about the author, etc. available for loan from the OWLSnet libraries
By................materials by the author, etc. available for loan from the OWLSnet libraries
GLRC..........Gale Literature Resource Center
GBRC..........Gale Biography Resource Center
PW...............Personal Website created by or for the person
IW................Interesting Website (in my opinion).
