Malta Libraries has a list of LGBTIQ+ reads available for its members!

With all the hate and prejudice going on in the world right now, it is easy to forget that there are allies all around us ready to reach out and support us.

Malta Libraries have posted a beautiful message this afternoon and offered a whole list of recommended LGBTIQ+ themed reads and can be accessed digitally if you are a Malta Library member!

In their post on their social media, they said:

We stand by our mantra: if you’re unsure, unprepared, confused about any given subject – READ UP ABOUT IT! Reading is always a great place to start. We believe that LGBTIQ+ stories are not only educational but also empowering for individuals who are searching for voices to relate to, for friends and families who wish to be of better support and for society in general to understand how to be the very best version it could be in embracing the community and in bringing about change.
