The Anchorage Public Library has gone all in to promote transgenderism and LGBTQ sexuality on impressionable young readers.

During the month of June, the library is promoting its “Read With Pride” campaign, which includes scores of book recommendations for teens and young children that seek to normalize and promote LGBTQ sexuality.

“Whether you’re headed out to celebrate at an event or you’re hanging at home, we’ve got some great titles for you to #ReadWithPride,” a library post on Facebook proclaims. “Grab an ebook or audiobook to take with you on the go or visit any of our 5 APL locations for “book books.”

The post includes a link to dozens of books for teens that feature homosexual romance, transgender love affairs, teens undergoing sexual identity issues, lesbian sexuality, gay camp counselors, horror stories by “queer authors of color,” and asexual dating.

Under its “kids” recommendations, the Anchorage Library includes colorful picture books and stories that promote same-sex parenting, homosexual marriage, queer family structures and the notion that conservative parents are wrong to oppose the LGBTQ lifestyle. Other books highlight “queer fantasy” and embracing one’s chosen “gender identity.”

    LGBTQ Alaskans, including younger people, use public libraries as much as anyone else. Shouldn’t they have access to the history, research, and stories that enrich and validate their lives?

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      validate their lives? You mean lies they been told.
      Seek to normalize and promote LGBTQ sexuality. Normalize there’s nothing Normal about two boys or two girls being in a relationship, or dating or any thing else

    • micah says:

      No. We need to stop promoting niche and deviant sexual lifestyles. They are bad for our society.

    • V says:

      For the less than 1% of the population?! It doesn’t need to be the overarching focal point no. The other 99% of society needs to be covered with normal stuff like how to whittle, check out about shipwrecks or homeschooling… literally anything other than the clownworld agenda the Anchorage muni is pushing.

    • Matthew Mills says:

      No. As a society we should probably be preferentially providing younger people with the history, research, and stories that enrich and validate the lives of the 95+% of folks with the ability to live normal lives, and the values that have preserved society for millennia.

    • Jeanette Exner says:

      Conversely, if you think LGBTQ library card holder should not have access to material that interests them, then they should be able to request that material denigrating them should be removed from library shelves.

      • Matthew Mills says:

        Like the Bible? I guess you could request that, it’s been banned before.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
    19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
    20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
    21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
    22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
    23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
    24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
    25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
    26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;
    27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
    28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. (Romans 1:18, ESV)

    God said it and it is pretty clear.

  • Once Upon a Time, We Knew This says:

    There are human actions that can and should be a source of natural pride, deserving of of public recognition. What persons do with their sexual organs is not one of those actions.

    • Sheb says:

      what about who someone loves?

      • Tamra Nygaard says:

        Love means wanting and actively seeking the highest and best for the other. I doubt a prolapsed anus fills that requirement. Using another for pleasure is not love, it is lust. And yes, it damages society whether you like that or not.

  • Johnny says:

    What a perverted, disgusting lifestyle being pushed on children, this borders on sex crimes and should be treated as such.

  • George Acres says:

    Children should be trained to acknowledge that the gay lifestyle is evil and that God hates gays!

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      God is Holy! People are sinful! This is essential to understand to begin the dialogue! “God hates gays” true if that specific statement refers to the actions! God also hates liars, as specifically related to the act of lying!
      Now grow up and try to understand!

    • Totallyagainstthegays says:

      i agree, this scholar talked about how we need to stop the homosexual agenda, it’s a good listen, I’ll put a link for anyone who wants to listen.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        That is the guy that sings that? I never researched who sang that song. I would have never pictured him singing that. Lol

    • Matthew Mills says:

      Go one step back. If we use their language we lose. We need to stop using nouns of “identity” and go back to verbs. What God hates is sin.

  • Citizenkane says:

    Homosexuals are wretched and deceived by satan. He has made them mentally ill, the only cure for them is through Christ, the Son of GOD. We must pray for them. But also we must not condone their evil actions. Speak out loudly against this sin, and never stop until it is no more.

  • Jon says:

    The LGBTQ+ people I know have amazing families, they are kind and gentle parents who love their children. I’m a proud LGBTQ+ ally.

    • Kim M says:

      Jon, that kind of talk will get you banned from this site. LGBTQA are EVIL! And that includes allies like yourself. I hope God has mercy on your soul.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Kim M, the words he used should not get him banned. It sounds like you are trying to push the idea that right to opinion is not allowed. That is unfortunate for you.
