June is National LGBT Pride Month!
According to research, there are more than 8 million adults in the US who self-identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual, or transgender comprising 3.8% of the adult population. According to the Library of Congress, “The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.” Stop by Holman Library to see a table display created by Dr. Darryn Diuguid and the Holman Library staff. We encourage you to select a children’s or young adult book to share with your family and friends during June. These texts have received national awards for their excellence in including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender main characters/storylines.
