Children's Books About LGBTQ+ History

Produced by the HRC Foundation

Welcoming Schools has curated a comprehensive booklist with accurate and informative texts about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer History. Many states have begun to mandate that LGBTQ+ history be taught in K-12 schools and the Welcoming Schools book list is a great place to start!

This book list features texts about Stonewall, including the transgender and gender non-conforming people who launched the modern, global LGBTQ+ Civil Rights Movement. There are books featuring Bayard Rustin and queer heroes for kids from the past and present. Plus there are several stories about the rainbow flag and early Pride celebrations.
