October 2021: Young Readers

Updated: Apr 7, 2022

For October 2021, we are featuring Rob Sanders’ book Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag. This book tells the story of Harvey Milk and the creation of the Rainbow flag, with the help of his friend Gilbert Baker. The key values held within the pages of this story include equality, pride, hope, love, inclusion, and belonging. Harvey believed in equality for all, and the rainbow flag is now the most widely used flag for 2SLGBTQ+ social movements.

“All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.” Harvey Milk
