Topic of Discussion: LGBTQ Children’s Books for Your Community

Hosted by : Queer Peers



How can we bridge LGBTQ topics and children’s books into brave spaces within our museums? Join us for this upcoming book club meeting with the Queer Peers! In this meeting, we’ll have the chance to engage in meaningful discussion while exploring and sharing resources through a scavenger hunt. By widening our library of resources, we hope to affect change in our institutions and move from tolerance to acceptance.
