The North Olympic Library System (NOLS) invites all people to Celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride Month in June.
Pride Month occurs each year in June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Riots in Manhattan, and is dedicated to uplifting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual voices (LGBTQIA), a celebration and commemoration of LGBTQIA+ culture and history.
Beginning this week and while supplies last, NOLS offers Pride Party Packs that include a rainbow flag, bubbles, stickers, resources, and more colorful items. Packs are for all ages but recommended for ages 5 and older because of small objects.
Children of all ages are invited to this family story time with featured guest Aries, a drag queen and local community member, starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 12. Listen to stories about friendship, sing songs and have fun. Participants are encouraged to wear something they love — a favorite outfit, accessory, costume,or whatever they happen to be wearing. Registration is required to receive Zoom link.
A virtual Teen Pride Party is set for 6 p.m. Friday, June 25, on Zoom. Activities will include a scavenger hunt, an art project and a safe space to socialize.
