TeenSpace: LGBTQ+ Pride Month
Your guide to all things teen at the Huntington Beach Public Library!
June is Pride Month, when we remember the 1969 Stonewall riots that sparked the movement for LGBT+ rights and celebrate the self-affirmation, equality, and increased visibility of LGBT+ folks everywhere. In celebration of Pride Month, the American Library Association (ALA) designates June as Rainbow Book Month, a nationwide initiative that celebrates literature honoring the lives and experiences of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, pansexual, genderqueer, queer, questioning, intersex, agender, and asexual community. Demonstrate your commitment to diversity and inclusivity by joining the Huntington Beach Public Library and hundreds of libraries across the nation in a celebration of the authors and books that reflect the LGBTQIA+ experience!
This fun and informative discussion with UCI Professor Jonathan Alexander sheds light on significant people, places, and events in queer history. You'll also hear some great recommendations for YA reads with LGBTQIA+ themes!
