Bring on the celebration!

Each June in the USA and around the world, celebrations of LGBTQ Month include parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and Pride Month events attract millions of participants. Memorials are held during this month for members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. As ever, PRH and its distributed clients have a multitude of books to recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally, including Fiction and Non-Fiction.

Sample titles are below, but these lists encompass the variety of titles that sell best.
