The American Library Association supports human rights, including gay rights, by supporting intellectual freedom, privacy and confidentiality, and promoting equal access to library services and resources. In 1970, the ALA formed its first LGBT forum called the Task Force on Gay Liberation. Today, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Round Table works to make library resources accessible to this community. The ALA seeks to do this by expanding their collections and services to include and reflect the needs of the LGBT community and by making their facilities welcoming to the LGBT community.
