June is LGBT Pride Month

June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month! I have put together a short list of movies, T.V. series, and audiobooks featuring LGBTQ+ characters, themes, or topics. Check out the XYZ Connect webpage to see what events we have planned in celebration of Pride Month!

Movies
Moonlight– A young black man struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.

Blue is the Warmest ColorThe colorful, electrifying romance that took the Cannes Film Festival by storm courageously dives into a young woman’s experiences of first love and sexual awakening. Blue is the Warmest Color is loosely based off of the comic by Julie Maroh.

Carol Two women from very different backgrounds find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. Carol is based off of The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith.

All About My MotherA woman must come to terms with the death of her 17-year-old son and her past when she seeks out her son’s father.

The Danish GirlThe remarkable love story inspired by the lives of artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. Lili and Gerda’s marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili’s groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer. The Danish Girl is based off of the novel by David Ebershoff.

The Way He LooksA fun and tender story about friendship and the complications of young love.

T.V. Series
Orange is the New BlackBrooklynite Piper Chapman, whose wild past comes back to haunt her and results in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary. Orange is the New Black is based off of the novel by Piper Kerman.

GleeA talented group of high school misfits transforms into a performing sensation with the help of a dedicated teacher. 

Will & GraceWill and Grace live together in an apartment in New York. Will is a gay lawyer, Grace is a straight interior designer, and every day is full of laughs.

FriendsThree young men and three young women – of the BFF kind – live in the same apartment complex and face life and love in New York. While Susan and Carol are the only known LGBT characters on Friends, there are implications throughout the entire series that Joey and Phoebe are bisexual.

The L WordA group of lesbian and bisexual women experience life in Los Angeles.

Audiobooks
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz- Fifteen-year-old Ari Mendoza is an angry loner with a brother in prison, but when he meets Dante and they become friends, Ari starts to ask questions about himself, his parents, and his family that he has never asked before.

Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertelli– Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight.

The Color Purple by Alice Walker- As a young, black woman living in 1930s Georgia, Celie faces constant violence and oppression. The Color Purple was made into a movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey.

Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan– When Paul falls hard for Noah, he thinks he has found his one true love, but when Noah walks out of his life, Paul has to find a way to get him back and make everything right once more. David Levithan has written many YA books featuring LGBTQ+ characters and themes, including the novel Two Boys Kissing.

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray– When a plane crash strands thirteen teen beauty contestants on a mysterious island, they struggle to survive, to get along with one another, to combat the island’s other diabolical occupants, and to learn their dance numbers in case they are rescued in time for the competition.
