Children's author Olly Pike is in Jersey as part of the Channel Islands Pride.
It is his first visit to the island and he will be giving away some of his LGBT+ books to primary school children.
The Assistant Education Minister will be meeting with Mr Pike at Jersey's Library for a presentation of the books.
Mr Pike says he is very pleased that his books are being read in schools.
Children at Key Stage 1 and 2 levels in Jersey are already taught about developing a variety of healthy relationships in a range of social and cultural contexts.
This year's Pride will take place on the beach for the first time ever with events, entertainment and activities throughout the day in St Aubin's Bay.
The afternoon will also see a parade from the Royal Square to Les Jardins de la Mer.
