Many of you may already know that June is LGBT Pride Month! The month of June was chosen to commemorate the historic Stonewall Riots, which took place in NYC on June 28, 1969. Hundreds of Pride Parades & Marches will soon take place across the globe, including the Boston Pride Parade on June 10th. If you’re interested in marching with the Bentley PRIDE delegation, you can register online here, or contact coordinator Tony Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The library is celebrating Pride Month with a display of almost 170 titles related to the LGBTQIA+ community. We chose a mix of fiction (including many graphic novels!), non-fiction, movies, and documentaries to try to provide a wide variety of voices and perspectives. The titles in this display engage with gender and sexual identity in myriad ways – academic or personal, joyous or difficult, sometimes all at once.
Come browse the display in the library lobby – titles will rotate so please ask at the Reference Desk if you’d like to see all the books/movies that are currently available! You can also see the full list of titles in our online catalog. If you see an item you want to check out, hit the “Request It” button to place a hold. Keep an eye on our social media to get recommendations, and to find links to items you can read or watch online!
