Pride Month Bibliography

June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) Pride Month. It was chosen as the month we observe this celebration because of the Stonewall Uprising on June 28, 1969. Stonewall was a watershed for gay rights activism and recognition of the way people live their lives. Since then, there have been improvements in LGBTQI civil rights in the United States, such as in relation to marriage, adoption, federal employment, military service, employment, and more. However, there is always room for advancement in equal rights for all. We hope that readers and law researchers find this list of newer acquisitions (last five years) useful as they study, write, and advocate on this issue.
