Pride Month at DNL

New initiatives like More Color More Pride have been making efforts to be inclusive within the LGBTQ+ community. Pictured above is a Pride flag with two new colors, recognizing people of color.

In celebration of Pride Month, the DiMenna-Nyselius Library is highlighting the LGBTQ+ authors, artists and musicians in our collection. Visit our display on the main level to check out a few works by LGBTQ+ creatives from our catalog.

Here are just a few featured:

Shelley Rice and Lynn Gumpert- Inverted Odysseys- Discover the way Claude Cahun, an openly gender non-conforming photographer, operated in 19th century France as she redefined gender identity.

Against Me!- Transgender Dysphoria Blues-, Against Me!’s record explores the self-discovery of the bands journey through the DIY music industry, as well as trans vocalist Laura Jane Grace’s identity.
