Happy Pride Month © MH – stock.adobe.com
June 1st marks the beginning of Pride Month, which is a celebration and remembrance of LGBTQ+ people across the United States and countries abroad. Borne from the Stonewall riots of 1969 and gay liberation protests thereafter, Pride Month highlights the struggles that LGBTQ+ peoples faced throughout history, the rights gained through protest and civil action, and honors individuals lost along the way. It is also a celebration of LGBTQ+ culture, which has permeated into the mainstream through shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race and Pose, graphic novels like Heartstopper, and movies such as Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022), Moonlight (2016), and Carol (2015).
In honor of Pride Month, this blog post will highlight some of the LGBTQ+ resources available through the University Libraries to support students, faculty, and community members. Below are some examples of these resources we carry, including both physical books and eBooks:
