LGBT Pride Round-up

We take serious pride in our diverse collection of LGBT studies books (and authors). So, in honor of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, we put together a dynamic list of blog posts from the past year on #LGBT topics of relevance–from marriage to parenthood, culture to religion. If you particularly enjoy a piece or think that we missed something important, please let us know in the comments!
