Welcome to our LGBTQ+Pride Month book exhibit! In this exhibit we focus on presenting recent and brand new best-selling and award-winning books and streaming videos you can enjoy. We include a section of books on LGBTQ+ activism, advocacy and visibility as well.
Pride Month is celebrated nationwide during the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall uprising that launched the national Gay Rights movement. Because of Iowa State University's academic calendar, the Ames community and ISU also celebrate Pride Month in early Fall.
