At its core, Pride continues to uphold the spirit from which it was born: as a political movement seeking to uplift LGBTQ2 voices, celebrate LGBTQ2 culture and garner support for LGBTQ2 rights. Throughout the month, celebrations traditionally involved parades, protests, drag performances, live theatre, memorials for those lost and more. Though we cannot meet in person this year, we still celebrate and recognize the many contributions and achievements of the queer community. We have curated some recommendations of content that can be enjoyed from home and have showcased some of the authors, artists and creators available in our collection in the following booklists: Must Read Titles for Pride Month
and our Two Spirit Authors
book list. These are contemporary titles by queer authors or with LGBTQ2 representation that you may enjoy.
