Happy Toronto Pride everybody!

Rainbows are popping up all over our lovely (if congested) city, and our window is no exception. In honour of the diverse people who make up our communities, we've put together an LGBTQ/sex positive display to showcase some literature and promote understanding.

There's something for everyone in here! We have books for children, families, LGBTQ youth and adults. There is also a variety of sex-positive literature available for the layman, and from a sociological, psychological or psychoanalytic viewpoint (and just what's in the window).

For youth who need some support and inspiration, there's The Letter Q , a curated collection of letters from queer writers to their younger selves. It's an inspirational, uplifting, and ultimately hopeful reminder that everyone has a future, and it can be better than the past. Beyond Magenta approaches the myriad of issues transgender teens face in their families and communites through the mediums of storytelling and photography. Susan Kuklin interviewed six vastly different transgender and genderqueer youth during their journey into the open with their identities, honestly discussing the struggles and triumphs of their disclosure.

For parents of both out and questioning youth, we have Always My Child , which offers support for the parent by giving them the crucial tools needed to care for their child. Kevin Jennings educates the parent about the daily struggles their child is facing with discrimination and cruelty from their peers and society. Jennings tries to give the parents the tools to support their child and maintain their self-worth in what can be a desperately confusing time in their lives.
This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids is written in a great Q & A format, which makes easily accessible for quick reference. The authors run an LGBTQ-centric website and pulled from their wealth of experience to assist with the emotional and practical concerns of growing up queer.

In recognition of the wide sexual spectrum we embrace in our society, we want to highlight The Invisible Orientation by Julie Sondra Decker, a celebrated voice and advocate for the often unrecognized and misunderstood asexual community. This title explains what asexuality is, and that it isn't an illness or disorder; it's another orientation to be respected and valued alongside every other one. She also offers support and strategies for asexual people in our highly sexualized society.

For parents of young children who want to foster understanding early, we have the beautifully illustrated Heather Has Two Mommies by Leslea Newman, which explains that what really makes a family is love.
For accessible sex-education, we have the body positive Sex is a Funny Word , which is directed at children ages 8-10. Going beyond just bodies, the comic-style book includes valuable information on orientation, gender, safety and boundaries.

Did you see something in the window we haven't mentioned above? Check out the full list of what's what by clicking "In the Window June/July 2016" in the right sidebar of our homepage. There's plenty more in the window and beyond. Look out for a bunch of new titles on sexualities in the next little while! There are lots of exciting things coming in every day!

From all of us at Caversham, we wish you all a Very Happy Pride 2016!
