June is Pride Month, when the LGBTQ community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer), along with their friends, families and allies commemorate their history and celebrate their achievements. This month-long celebration demonstrates how LGBTQ Americans strengthen our country through talent, creativity, and courage to generate awareness and goodwill. Dayton Metro Library provides materials, book clubs, and reading recommendations that highlight the journeys of LGBTQIA individuals. Below you will find books and tools we love that celebrate PRIDE year round.
