According to the 2019 GLSEN Minnesota School Climate survey, about 60% of Minnesota students say they have access to LGBTQ-related library resources at school.

Just 27% of Minnesota students say they were taught positive representations of LGBTQ people, history, or events at school. A collection of texts that positively represent LGBTQ+ characters and historical figures is critical for any school to be an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ students and those with LGBTQ+ family members.
