Talking to Kids About LGBTQ+ Issues

LGBTQ+ Pride Month is an important time for children, too! Let's hear from Betsy, one of our early literacy librarians.

New gender and sexuality terms and concepts are bubbling up in common culture. Children are curious about the world and the people around them and may start asking you questions.

Maybe you're looking for guidance on gender identity issues to better understand your own child or help your child understand a friend.

Perhaps you've heard of families who are trying not to conform to the gender binary as they raise their children, but you're not quite sure what that means.

Whether for your own family or just to educate yourself, The Human Rights Campaign website is good place to look for information, supportive resources for LGBTQ+ families, book lists for children ages pre-k and up, and suggestions for how to talk to young children about gender and sexuality.
