Supporting Love and Inclusion Beyond Hollywood
As we celebrate Pride Month, it’s important to remember that love and acceptance should be celebrated for everyone, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. With book bans on the rise and the number of contested books increasing from 566 in 2019 to over 2,500 in 2022, it’s crucial for allies and the LGBTQ+ community to support diversity and inclusion throughout the year. Queer books provide a window into the experiences, challenges, and triumphs of LGBTQ+ individuals, and the 31 books compiled for Pride Month have the power to educate and deepen empathy for all.
