Pride Month

Rainbow Reads

Pride Month is celebrated each year in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. Among other things, it’s a great time to learn more about and honor key figures in the LGBTQ+ Rights Movement and the fight for full equality. For those in the community, it can also be a personal or even communal celebration of self-worth, dignity, and visibility. Read the rainbow! And, if you find a book you connect with, be sure to share it with friends and family!
