This workshop will be a facilitated discussion as to how we can begin to effectively and thoughtfully integrate LGBTQ issues, stories, literature and more into our curriculum. We will explore ways to promote gender and sexuality equity in the library. We will start with a brief introduction to key terms and concepts surrounding gender and sexuality and then explore the importance of including these issues in our libraries. Finally, we will share what we do in our own libraries. Each participant will be given resources and annotated booklists for their own professional use.
