Posted on 13th Feb 2022

This month we will be focussing on the History of the LGBTQ+ Community.  We will be posting daily facts that are associated with people and communities that are part of a minority sexuality or gender identity.  We hope you learn something that you didn’t know before about LGBTQ+ History!

Books for Children and Young Adults

Until recently there were very few books aimed at children or young adults about the LGBTQ+ community.  If someone had two mums, or two dads, or had links in anyway to the LGBTQ+ community then it was very hard to find literature or role models that were age-appropriate.

Now there are hundreds of books aimed at helping children and young adults to gain understanding of LGBQT+ issues, whether they are LGBTQ+ themselves or just want to gain knowledge of the diversity of the world around them.

Over half term, why not pick an age appropriate title from the reading list below?
