June is Pride Month and this year BiblioCommons is excited to unveil BiblioBingo — our Pride Month Bingo card!

Join along, and cross off as much as you can, as we read books by LGBTQIA2S+ authors, listen to albums by LGBTQIA2S+ musicians, watch Queer films, create lists in the catalog, add tags to items, and write comments!


To help you make sure you can check off all the items here are some great lists from our partner libraries celebrating Queer, non-binary, Two-Spirit, gender non-conforming and LGBTQIA2S+ content at the library.

Looking to check off the “read a memoir by an LGBTQIA2S+ author” square? Here are two fantastic Own Voices lists where I’m sure you’ll be able to find something:

Trans, Non-Binary and Two-Spirit biographies and memoirs at Vancouver Public Library, or try this list from The Indianapolis Public Library of Own Voices memoirs.
