June is Pride Month, a worldwide celebration, commemoration, recognition, and coming together of all members of the LGBT+ community. There are many different ways to celebrate pride as individuals as well as part of our communities. From parades and parties to exhibitions and art performances. You can celebrate pride loudly, quietly, in groups or by yourself.
Books have always been a fantastic resource for learning and witnessing diverse representations. You can find a selection of fantastic books from fiction to biography, poetry to essays all written by LGBTQIA writers on our Pride Books page. Below we’ve listed some of our favourite literary quotes to celebrate pride. Read ours and share your own!
It is always important that we continue to educate ourselves and each other on the history of pride as a protest, and the continued necessity to fight for the rights of all LGBT+ people around the world.
