Let’s Read It!: LGBTQIA+ Banned Book Club - Reading Gender Queer
There has been a recent uptick in attempts to remove or ban certain books from schools, public libraries and other educational spaces. According to PEN America, 4 in 10 books banned in 2022 contained LGBTQIA+ themes and representation.
The University Library System and Pitt Queer Professionals will host virtual discussions of popular LGTBQIA+ books that have been challenged or banned. This is a safe space program and all are welcome! Registration is required. The first 10 registrants will receive a free book.
