How Libraries Became Sanctuaries for LGBTQ Kids

Excerpts from the article:

In May 2021, as efforts to ban books on LGBTQ topics from school libraries were gaining political steam, “Two Grooms on a Cake: The Story of America’s First Gay Wedding” was published. It is a children’s story about Michael McConnell’s 1971 marriage to a man, which was upheld as legal by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015.

But McConnell isn’t just a protagonist in a book; as a librarian, he was instrumental in transforming libraries into the kind of welcoming places for LGBTQ kids that he craved as a boy.

It’s largely because of him and a handful of colleagues that library shelves today have space for books like “Two Grooms” — a historic accomplishment that McConnell, now 80 and enjoying a quiet retirement in Minneapolis with his husband, worries is endangered.


LFC Comments: After reading the article, we came to the obvious conclusion. If homosexuality became the order of the day, and the overwhelming majority of the world was homosexual then that would be a civilization ending event. The human race would cease to exist as we know it today.

The “Two Grooms on the Cake”, according to Amazon, is written for ages 6 – 9 years of age. One has to ask “Why”?
