Happy Pride Month!

June 19, 2017 | by

I hope everyone is having an excellent Pride Month, with parades and fighting for equal rights for all LGBTQ+ peoples!

In between all these events (check out a calendar here), try to get some reading in.

Introducing kids to the concept of gender diversity is a great way to start:
