Anchorage Public Library's new campaign expresses LGBTQ pride in children

The Anchorage Public Library has gone out of its way to promote transgenderism and LGBTQ sexuality to impressionable young readers.

In June, the library will promote its “Read With Pride” campaign, which includes numerous book recommendations for teens and young children that support the normalization and promotion of LGBTQ sexuality.

“Whether you're out and about celebrating an event or hanging out at home, we have some great titles for you to read with #ReadWithPride,” the library said in a Facebook post. “Pick up an e-book or audiobook to read on the go, or visit any of our 5 APL locations to 'Read Books.'”

The post includes a link to dozens of books for teens about homosexual love relationships, transgender love affairs, teens with sexual identity issues, lesbian sexuality, gay camp counselors, horror stories by “queer authors of color,” and asexual dating.

The Anchorage Library offers colorful picture books and stories for children that promote same-sex parenting, gay marriage, queer family structures, and the idea that conservative parents are wrong to oppose the LGBTQ lifestyle. Other books highlight “queer fantasies” and acceptance of one's chosen “gender identity.”
