Que(e)ry began in June 2010 as a subgroup of The Desk Set (http://thedeskset.org/), an informal group of librarians, archivists, library science students and other individuals who love books and occasionally throw fund-raising parties for libraries and non-profit organizations whose missions support literacy and culture. Que(e)ry aims to promote awareness for non-profit libraries and archives with collections and services related to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and two spirit rights, heritage, and literature. Que(e)ry has held nine successful parties to benefit such organizations across the country, including the Lesbian Herstory Archives, the Tom of Finland Foundation, the LGBT Community Center Library in NYC, the Queer Zine Archive Project, the Gerber/Hart Library and Archives, and the Transgender Foundation of America Archives.
