LGBT+ Pride Month

June is LGBT+ Pride Month, and we want to show off some items from our collection, both in print and digital to celebrate! The books selected below represent a variety of perspectives and genres, written in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, and describing gender and sexuality across many cultures, countries, and regions. All books on display are available for checkout by UF community patrons and also by interlibrary loan.

There is much more to explore in our collection as well as digital resources such as the Digital Library of the Caribbean.
