Banned Books 2022 – Queer: A Graphic History

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


The Elmbrook School District (Brookfield, WI) suspended access to Queer: A Graphic History by Meg-John Barker & Jules Scheele and This Book is Gay by Juno Dawson via the school’s e-book app and the school libraries following a challenge from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL). WILL asserted in its challenge that the books “contained graphic instructions on sex acts and the use of online sex apps.” WILL complained that materials available through the school district’s e-book app were not subject to the school’s Internet filtering software. The district indicated they would review their library material selection and controversial issues policies at a future Teaching and Learning Committee meeting.
