Misouri school returns 2 banned books to llibraryA Missouri school district on Monday said it would return two books exploring LGBTQ+ themes to its high school libraries following public outcry.

The North Kansas City School district announced its plans to reshelve “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Fun Home” in a letter to students’ families on Friday, according to the Associated Press, which obtained a copy of the letter on Monday through a district spokeswoman.

Both books were pulled from library shelves following a school board meeting in October, when parents complained they were inappropriate and sexually explicit.

“I am shocked and absolutely aggravated at what is in our school systems,” James Richmond, the president of one of the district’s parent associations, told the local news station KCTV at the time.
