New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, according to the 2019 GLSEN New Hampshire School Climate survey, about 70% of New Hampshire students say they have access to LGBTQ-related library resources at school, and just 17% of Massachusetts 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.
