11 LGBTQ Stories to Celebrate Pride Month
In 1969, the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in the United States was jumpstarted by the Stonewall Riots. One year later, the first Gay Pride March was held to commemorate the riots, becoming the genesis for June Pride events around the world. This year, we at Off the Shelf are celebrating Pride with 11 books featuring LGBTQ characters and by LGBTQ individuals that showcase how far we’ve come since the raids and riots of the ’60s and the struggles and experiences of the LGBTQ community today.
