Too Young for Libby – Talking about Mississippi


CW:// Homophobia, SA

In this thought-provoking discussion, Nox and Tayler delve into the controversial Mississippi Code 39-3-25 that resulted in the banning of Libby, Overdrive, and Hoopla for minors in the state. They shed light on the ramifications of this decision, which inadvertently deprives minors of vital resources, and critically analyze its true intent—to limit LGBT+ representation. Through this conversation, we confront the complexities of censorship and its impact on marginalized communities.

Books/Resources Mentioned:
