March’s Virtual Pride Club: Queer History & Historical Fiction

Submitted by edawson on March 6, 2021 - 8:57am

Our Virtual Pride Club for Teens ages 13-18 continues this month with the theme of Queer History and Historical Fiction! Queer history and the people that advanced our rights don't always receive the recognition they deserve, so it is important that we work to highlight the activists and moments that helped us reach where we are now. This month we will have a special guest presentation from folks at the Lesbian Archives of Sonoma County and OutWatch, Wine Country’s LGBTQI Film Festival. We will also delve more into local queer history by exploring Sonoma County Library’s very own History and Genealogy collections. Here are some links, resources, and of course books to get you thinking about LGBTQIA+ History!

We will be meeting online at 4:00pm every Tuesday in March. For more information, email teenpride@sonomalibrary.org.
