Officials in a northern Virginia school district are pushing back against a campaign by conservative parents to withdraw books with LGBTQ characters from elementary schools.
The Washington Post reports that a subcommittee of the Loudoun school board voted Wednesday to prevent the removal of two books.
They are “Prince & Knight” and “Heather Has Two Mommies.”
The subcommittee’s decision will stand for at least a year. The vote follows the removal of at least five other books after conservative parents launched an effort against LGBTQ literature in elementary schools.
