Pride Month: Young Adult Titles

One of the volunteer opportunities available for youth at TBPL is joining the Youth Action Council. This group meets monthly during the school year to discuss Library services, programs, and collections for teens. This May, the current YAC group went shopping at Chapters and these are just some of the titles they selected for purchase! I realized that this would make a great list for Pride Month as so many of the books they choose had LGBTQ2S+ representation. Another theme we discovered while going through these titles – music and musicians!

Listen to the episode on your favourite podcast platform by searching for Read This Next or watch on our YouTube channel. Place your TPBL holds for print books through our online catalogue, or search for eBooks through cloudLibrary.

Links from our convo:

The iconic breakup scene from Legally Blond that Blaine for the Win made me think of! For comparison, the description for the book is: Blaine is too goofy, too flighty, too…unserious. And if Joey wants to go far in life, he needs to start dating more serious guys.

Surrender Your Sons by Adam Sass

Manhunt by Gretchen Felker-Martin

Place your TPBL holds for print books through our online catalogue, or search for eBooks through cloudLibrary. If an older book is no longer available in our collection, put in an Interlibrary Loan request and we will get it for you that way!
