June is LGBT Pride Month

June 11, 2010

Did you know that June is LGBT Pride month? The library is commemorating LGBT Pride with two events. At the first, Erin Carlston of UNC-CH gave a fascinating talk about queer lives and literature in the early 20th century. And this Sunday (June 13) , UNC-CH’s Wendy Weber will discuss the role of “coming out” stories in LGBT literature. See more details here:

June is a great time to discover LGBT literature or re-discover old favorites. Here is a list of “rainbow reading” to get you started:

And just a little shout out for our friends at the Carolina Theatre — mark your caleandars for the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, August 12-15.
