The EQDG Board is saddened and angered that hateful homophobic actions and words have led to threats to the Downers Grove Public Library staff, leadership, and community. There is no excusing these threats. We support our Library staff and leadership in making the difficult decision to cancel the Drag Queen Bingo event for teens. By making this extremely difficult decision, our Library has acted responsibly and honorably to protect teens and staff. EQDG supports our LGBTQIA+ community and our Board is in the process of considering options for further support of the library through education, civic action, and public policy. EQDG appreciates the support we’ve received from the community and wants everyone to know we continue to focus on our mission of creating an accepting and equitable environment for LGBTQIA+ people.
