June is Gay Pride month

And no, I don't have an art project for you but I DO have a list of books for kidlets 12 and up regarding this sometimes sensitive subject. Each of these books is unique and telling. From fiction to personal essays, I recommend them all. As an educator it is my duty to get the word out on books of all subject matters. Whether you support the gay community or not, there are people out there struggling with their identities and usually they begin their struggle early on. Being able to read a book where the main character holds a sliver of your true self in their pocket can be liberating. At the very least, gay and lesbian teens will know they are not alone.
