On June 28, 1969, members of the LGBT community rioted after police raided a gay bar called Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Inn Riots proved to be a turning point in the LGBT civil rights movement. In celebration and memory of this momentous event in America, Pride Month now takes place in June. During this month, cities all over the nation host parades, marches, rallies, festivals, and other events to promote respect, equality, and pride for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. In honor of Pride month, and to help spread inclusiveness and representation I have created a list of some adult and YA science fiction and fantasy books that feature or focus on characters that are LGBTQ+.
Attention: our libraries will be closed Sunday, May 27 and Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day.
