The Rainbow Book Bus

As anti-LGBTQ+ book bans sweep the country, we're partnering with wayOUT, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, to launch a loud, proud, and very queer bookmobile across the United States. With your support, we can start our first tour this summer, bringing queer joy, stories, and community to the towns that need it most.
