Description

Created to increase the recognition of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender writing. Begun in 1992 by The Publishing Triangle, June was selected in honor of the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riot in New York City. It was this brave resistance to police harassment that kickstarted the gay pride movement in the US. Celebrate National GLBT Book Month with resources that come out of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) of ALA, including the Stonewall Book Awards List, the Rainbow Books List, and the Over the Rainbow Books List. Contact ALA's Office for Literacy and Outreach Services with questions.
