County Celebrates Pride Month with Library Events and Resources
For more than five years, Leon County Government has made a commitment to recognizing and celebrating various history and heritage months throughout the year with resources, programs, and events for the whole community. In June, Leon County celebrates the achievements and contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community during Pride Month with an exhibit, crafts, and resources from the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library System. Thematic book lists and movie watchlists give citizens the opportunity to learn about the lives and experiences of the LGBTQ+ community and events that shaped history.
In addition to these in-person and digital resources, citizens are encouraged to attend the County’s upcoming Pride Month events.
