Library Grant Program


A central part of our mission is to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender members of law enforcement to “come out” and to live an authentic life.  This mission also includes supporting LGBT people who are pursuing a career in law enforcement.  This grant program provides a hardcover copy of “Coming Out From Behind The Badge” and “American Heroes Coming Out From Behind The Badge” to public libraries, school libraries and law enforcement agency libraries.  By providing these two resources to libraries throughout the United States, we hope to make these stories and our experience more accessible to law enforcement agency leaders, LGBT employees, and those who aspire to join the law enforcement profession.   Click Here to learn more about our books.
