Sexuality & Gender Identity Pride Library Logos

Sexuality and Gender Identity Pride Library Logos with link to Wikimedia Commons | Hafuboti.com

A month ago or so, a dear friend (Hi, Nick!) reached out to me to suggest making pride versions of the public library logo. And two days ago, when I was included in a Twitter thread about a design that I had not created, I decided to drop everything and get to work.

I was ultra-inspired and created over 150 designs based on pride flag designs. Fear not! I will not upload them all to my blog (and thus having my followers receive a ginormous email from me as a result). Instead, I have uploaded them to the Wikimedia Commons.

A huge shout-out must go to PrideNation.LGBT for their collection of flag designs. I would not have created these images as efficiently as I did without their shop. Follow the above link and check out their great items for sale (they have way more than just flags).

I would like to dedicate this work to the gay young man who had genuine questions for me back during my college years. It was that single open and thoughtful discussion that has had a beautiful rippling effect throughout my life. I may not remember your name, but you will never be forgotten.

Here are a few sample images for you to use or modify in any way that you’d like. And like everything on my blog, it’s under a Creative Commons license, with the bonus that I do not want to be credited on the artwork. Truly. Look through all of the designs here, and please don’t hesitate to let me know if I unintentionally did anything insensitive, or left anyone out. I’ll get it fixed ASAP!

LAFE: Mennonite Representation

Around six months ago, a librarian in Ontario named Laurel wrote me a lovely email. In it, she requested that I design two new figures in my LAFE designs: two Mennonite women. One woman would be a more traditional Amish/Mennonite woman, and the other would be what is called Low German. After doing some research, I came up with two versions – and now I share them with you all.

Thank you, Laurel, for both reaching out and being incredibly patient with me.

Below you will find individual pngs of the new figures, English LAFE signs with these new characters added, and German LAFE signs with these new characters added.

A NOTE: I am slowly working on getting my artwork uploaded onto the Wikimedia Commons for people to find it easier all the while making all of it “officially” licensed. That said – my entire blog here is under a Creative Commons Attribute/Share Alike license – so know that I both want and encourage everyone to download, share, modify, and have fun with my work!

I also want to reiterate what I’ve stated in the past since I can’t make it an exception within the license: I do not want my name (given or business) on my minimalist art. It sort of ruins the clean lines and elegance. Just don’t tell people that you’re the creator – I’m fine with you crediting it to “an awesome Punk Rock Book Jockey blogger” if you can’t recall either of my names. Or write by Hafuboti on the back in pencil if you’re worried about it. Seriously. Have fun.

I plan on putting this note on the bottom of all of my Libraries Are For Everyone posts so if you’ve read the above paragraph once, then you won’t need to again (unless you really want to).

Libraries Are For Everyone: Uzbek

Earlier this week I was contacted by Shawn, an Innovation Media Specialist at an elementary school in Illinois. One of her school’s EL teachers – the fabulous Lata Shah – had translated LAFE into three more languages!

Thank you both Lata and Shawn!!!

Libraries Are For Everyone: Tamazight

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Ehab, the father one of Ann F’s students, who provided the Tamazight translation for Libraries Are For Everyone. Ann is a wonderful Teacher-Librarian in Washington, who reached out to me and with some help, provided me with this and the Oriya translation.
Thank you too, Ann!
