June is Pride Month! 
“When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.” — President Barack Obama

Pride is celebrated every June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York. Stonewall was a tipping point in the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Learn more about the history of Pride here.

In celebration of Pride, we’ve compiled booklists for adults, teens and kids celebrating queer identity and LGBT+ voices. Check them out below and visit your local Aurora Public Library for more stories honoring Pride!

“When you put love out in the world it travels, and it can touch people and reach people in ways that we never even expected.” — Laverne Cox, actress
