This month MomsRising celebrated Pride Month by highlighting books written by LGBTQIA+ authors and trailblazers. The books covered the growing conversation on pronouns, Queer allyship, and leadership.

Our member, Kelly Newman also shared a moving account of their child breaking barriers and how they are learning to get beyond the binary as a family.  

Below are some of the books we featured and additional books you may want to check out or add to your personal library.  

Pride Puppy by Robin Stevenson will introduce a story of loss, connection, and Pride.

What Are Your Words? by Katherine Locke is a beautifully illustrated book that will help guide parents when introducing pronouns to readers of all ages.

The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin is a riveting read that delves into the intersections of racism in America at the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

The Purpose of Power by Alicia Garza is a great read for anyone interested in learning more about being change-makers.
