We’re happy to announce we have been at PrideWork’s annual lgbtq conference 2 years in a row!! We had a great time March 2024  and will be continuing to collect books throughout the year online and in person to have a bigger impact next year!  

PrideWorks’s mission is to inform communities about the realities of growing up gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, and to inspire them to respect and support LGBTQ people and to advocate for positive change. Prideworks was organized to produce an annual conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) youth, their allies, and the adults in their lives. The conference serves students from more than 70 middle and high schools and 10 colleges and universities. 

If you’re interested in gifting a young person a book please review our YA in- house inventory below and gift one today!  Orders will be processed normally, add the book to your cart and proceed to check out. Once purchased the YA books will be added to our FREE box for queer youth who attend the PrideWork’s conference and together we can build a better world.
