May 17th is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. If you would like more information on LGBTQ+ life or issues, we have a number of excellent non-fiction books on display in the library. We also have a display of novels which feature gay, bisexual or trans characters. For more information on what this day is about, check out the IDAHOT website, this pdf, or stop by the library!
