A Missouri school district on Monday said it would return two books exploring LGBTQ+ themes to its high school libraries following public outcry.

The North Kansas City School district announced its plans to reshelve “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Fun Home” in a letter to students’ families on Friday, according to The Associated Press, which obtained a copy of the letter on Monday through a district spokeswoman.

Both books were pulled from library shelves following a school board meeting in October, when parents complained they were inappropriate and sexually explicit.
