About Julian is a Mermaid
Julian is a Mermaid has received many prestigious book awards, including the Stonewall Book Award for “exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience”. The book is of few words and beautiful pictures depicting the story of a child who wants to be like the mermaids he sees on the subway and his abuela (grandmother) is supportive.

About Jazz and Friends
After a national anti-LGBTQ hate group bullied a young transgender girl in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, her community rallied behind her by hosting a community reading of “I Am Jazz” by transgender advocate Jazz Jennings.very year, in honor of the Mount Horeb community’s allyship, communities across the country join HRC’s Welcoming Schools program for its annual Jazz & Friends National Day of School and Community Readings. Communities and schools all over the country will be reading LGBTQ inclusive books to show their allyship for the LGBTQ families, children, and people in their communities.

Sobre Julian es una sirena

Julian es una sirena ha recibido muchos premios de libros prestigiosos, incluido el Stonewall Book Award por “mérito excepcional relacionado con la experiencia gay / lesbiana / bisexual / transgénero”. El libro tiene pocas palabras y bellas imágenes que representan la historia de un niño que quiere ser como las sirenas que ve en el metro y su abuela (abuela) lo apoya.

Sobre jazz y amigos

Después de que un grupo nacional de odio anti-LGBTQ intimidó a una joven transgénero en Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, su comunidad se unió detrás de ella al organizar una lectura comunitaria de “I Am Jazz” del defensor transgénero Jazz Jennings. Cada año, en honor al Mount Horeb Alias ​​de la comunidad, las comunidades de todo el país se unen al programa de Escuelas de Bienvenida de HRC para su Día Nacional de Lectura Escolar y Comunitaria Jazz & Friends. Las comunidades y escuelas de todo el país leerán libros inclusivos LGBTQ para mostrar su alianza para las familias, niños y personas LGBTQ en sus comunidades.
