Celebrating LBGT Pride Month

9 Jun

June is LGBT Pride Month and I definitely want to offer you some great titles to read, so you can check out my post from last year with a great graphic and titles for all readers! I’m really enjoying the fact that it’s becoming easier to find books with LBGT characters and as usual, my favorite are the books that don’t even “deal” with the topic but it’s just a matter of fact type of thing like, “the sky is blue and this character is gay.” It’s not something that needs to be discussed, it just is.

If you’re looking for more LGBT titles, check out the Stonewall Book Awards, sponsored by the American Library Association’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table since 1971. This is a great place to look for true representation; titles that are well-written and portray he gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience. The Children’s and Young Adult Awards for 2017 went to Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan and If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo.
