I write a blog post for Upstart each month on one selected topic from the children's activity calendars for their Ideas+Inspiration blog.
For June I wrote about Pride Month and offered several different resources to help raise awareness in your school, library, and classroom. June is a month to celebrate with pride — pride in who we are, in our stories and in our value in this world. This is not a time for shame or fear. It is a time for affirming the beautiful way we were made and for affirming the beauty in one another, as an LGBTQ individual or as an ally. Taking pride in ourselves and others makes us stronger, more tolerant and more loving; in turn, it makes the world so as well.
