Shared booklist

Teaching LGBTQIA+ Topics Recommended Reading: Adult

This list was created for a workshop called "Teaching LGBTQIA+ Topics in the Classroom" that took place on February 16, 2016 at Brooklyn public Library. Led by educator, Aaron McAuliffe, it was for PreK-12 educators interested in incorporating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual and related topics into their classroom and school community. By no means an exhaustive list, it represents a broad array of BPL's holdings on these subjects.
