Disability Pride Month 2024

Celebrate Disabled
Voices & Stories

July is Disability Pride Month, a time to honor and celebrate the achievements, history, and experiences of the disabled community. Originating from the first Disability Pride Day in Boston in 1990, the same year the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law, this month-long celebration promotes visibility and understanding of disabilities. It encourages people to embrace and respect diversity, highlighting the importance of inclusivity in all aspects of society.

To commemorate Disability Pride Month, we have curated a list of essential books that offer unique perspectives on disability. These works, ranging from memoirs and novels to informative non-fiction, provide valuable insights into the lives of disabled individuals, their challenges, triumphs, and the richness of their experiences. Whether you’re looking to deepen your understanding or seeking inspiring stories, this book list is the perfect resource for celebrating Disability Pride Month.
