The goal of Lethbridge Pride Fest is to organize and provide an annual gay pride festival and to promote events to citizens of Southern Alberta, as well as to promote LGBTTQQIA pride and equality throughout Southern Alberta through the pride festival.
Entries are coming in and the Divas are getting ready. There is still time to enter the Drag-A-Doll Makeover Contest, with first prize being an exciting prize package to the Diva Cabaret, April 6/7. Dolls can be picked up for free at Drunken Sailor and Catwalk SalonSpa Official.
The University of Lethbridge Bookstore and Lethbridge Pride Fest believes that all children and young adults should be able to find themselves, and lose themselves, in the pages of a good book. To that end, it has been our pleasure to work collaboratively with the Lethbridge Public Library to create the following list of LGBTQ books for young readers. This is definitely just the tip of the iceberg and, as phenomenal books featuring LGBTQ+ characters and themes continue to cross our desks, we will continue to update the list! If we are missing any of your favourites, we would love to hear about those too!
Many of these books are available at the Lethbridge Public Library and at the University of Lethbridge Bookstore.
