LGBTQIA+ Pride Month

The LGBTQ+ Pride Guide showcases books and films that celebrate the history, experiences, health, and creative work of the LGBTQ+ community.

Reads for Pride

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan, New York. After years of raids on queer community spaces, on June 28, 1969, the NYC police raided Stonewall Inn, arresting patrones and employees. This raid resulted in weeks of protest and political actions led in large part by trans women of color. These protests sparked the queer liberation movement, which continues into today. As we celebrate pride month, let's continue the work started 70 years ago by learning about the history, experience, and legacy of the LGBTQ+ community.​​​
