The Canadian government works to improve equality for members of LGBTQ2 communities through the development of inclusive federal policies, programs and laws.

The launch of the Pride campaign in June promotes the identities of anyone who self-identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and/or Two-Spirit, as well as individuals who may use different terms to refer to their orientation or identity and expression.

Our collection explores this topic through adult, youth and junior fiction and non-fiction titles. L&A Libraries suggests the following as excellent board books on this topic:
