Our Periodicals Collection is the world’s most comprehensive holding of Australian LGBTIQ+ periodicals, and the most extensive collection of non-Australian LGBTIQ+ periodicals in Australia, with over 2100 titles. Our holdings include national magazines and journals, metropolitan street press, community group newsletters, and zines.

One hundred and fifty titles, comprising almost 250,000 pages, have been digitised in Gale’s Archives of Sexuality and Gender, which is accessible for free onsite at our Reading Room, and from selected research libraries. You can also access digitised copies of Camp Ink and Lesbians on the Loose online at the National Library of Australia’s Trove website.
