Happy Pride - Reading tips for children and young adults

Pride bu kollasj

June sees the celebration of Pride Month worldwide, and on Saturday June 27 a digital parade show will be live streamed from Oslo (12:00 CET, GMT +1).
At NORLA, we are happy to join in the celebration by sharing a selection of gay themed books available for children and young adults. The list is made by IBBY Norway (International Board on Books for Young People), and here you may read more about the books originally published in Norwegian.
