June is Pride Month

Celebrate and learn with your library card– through both the library itself and our various online resources!

Looking for something light? Try Andrew Sean Greer’s Less, available on Overdrive and through our library. Or maybe you could try something by Rita Mae Brown, Oscar Wilde, or Tony Kushner.

If you’re looking for something a little more serious, you could try out Rat Bohemia, by Sarah Schulman. Otherwise, try something by Jeannette Winterson, or Charlie Jane Anders, or James Baldwin, or Dorothy Allison, to name a few.

Looking for some videos? Kanopy has entire sections dedicated to LGBTQ cinema, both in terms of documentaries and fiction. Here are some highlights, in no particular order:

The best part of Pride month is that no matter how many recommendations we give, we barely scratch the surface of fantastic LGBTQ contributions to art, literature, and life. For more information on Pride, and to see what events are happening this month, check out the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center on Facebook, or other local organizations.

Ultimately, though, just have fun, be safe, and open yourself up to learning something new this Pride season.
