Read with PRIDE!

LGBTQ History Month, Read With Pride sign with rainbow backgroundThis June the City Tech Library is celebrating LGBTQ Pride month.  Near the library entrance there is a book display featuring books by LGBTQ authors and LGBTQ topics.

There are many CUNY resources available to support its LBGTQ community and to foster queer studies and research. Check out LGBT Life , a database with broad coverage of national and international LBGTQ publications.

Explore LBGTQ Studies at CUNY, the CUNY LGBTQI Student Leadership Program a year-long social justice training program, and the Free Queer CUNY: An Open Pedagogy Project a queer pedagogy initiative that seeks to encourage further queer studies course options at CUNY .

For happenings outside of CUNY, check out the Lesbian Herstory Archives, a local institution with a long history and commitment to collecting and protecting materials by and about lesbians and their community. Let other projects like the NYC LBGT Historic Sites Project, Mapping NYC’s Historic Queer Nightlife and StoryCorps Outloud bring you inside queer stories and locales.

Grab a book. Write a paper. Take a class. Explore a map. Listen to a story.

Happy Pride!
