Arlington Public Library will host several LGBTQIA+ programs in June and spotlight the “Diverse Voices” LGBTQIA+ booklists at all branches in celebration of Pride Month this year. Pride Month recognizes the impact that LGBTQIA+ individuals have had on our history — locally, nationally and internationally.
Join the Library for a Pride 2022 Kickoff event with Cake Society (May 28). Listen to a virtual talk with author and transgender educator Alex Myers (June 13). Participate in a fun discussion of LGBTQIA+ themed books (June 27) and learn about the history of the Pride flag (June 28). All library programs are free and made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library.
Library patrons are invited to explore the Library’s diverse LGBTQIA+ booklists, ranging from trans and nonbinary voices, to the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, to picture Books with LGBTQIA+ families and movies with LGBTQIA+ characters.
Arlington Public Library maintains a variety of diverse booklists, titled “Books Like Us: Diverse Voices Booklists,” designed to create awareness, to entertain and to educate about people, history and timely topics. Handpicked by our librarians, these curated lists are updated continuously and encourage readers to explore a wide variety of themes and topics ranging from Pride, Black Lives Matter, Latinx voices and many more.
