Q Center Library

The UW Q Center’s Marsha P. Johnson Memorial Library is a community library with close to 1500 books, zines, and films. The library is named after Marsha P. Johnson, a black transwoman from New York City who was a leader in the clashes with police during the Stonewall Riots. She started the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries with Sylvia Rivera to keep young queer and trans kids off the streets of New York City. Marsha was murdered in 1992.

Our library is organized by the Library of Congress Call Number system. The check-out period for books is two weeks, films are one week, and zines and magazines are for use inside the Q Center.
