The Library at Reykjavík Pride 2021

Queer books in a book shelf

Höfðingi Bookmobile is an active participant in Reykjavík Pride. Therefore, the Bookmobile will be filled with queer books for everyone to read or borrow.

The Reykjavík City Library puts emphasis on offering queer books and wants to ensure that they are visible and accessible, for us all, always.

The Bookmobile will be located in Tjarnargata between the 3rd and the 6th of August and welcomes guests between 13 – 18.

Málverk í regnbogalitunum með litlum polaroid myndum af Starínu

Drag Queen Starína reads and entertains the children at Reykjavík Pride!

Why? Because reading is the best!

For some time now Starína has entertained children by reading stories for them where the characters are queer. This can be a good way to introduce the children to other realities and encourages them to question what is considered natural. It is a way to learn that people can be different.

Starína reads in Icelandic.

After the reading, the children can have their picture taken with Starína. #dragstund #starína #lesturerbestur
