Celebrate Pride with these unique, thoughtful, and warm reads that champion the LGBTQ+ experience.
The incredible thing about Pride month is the opportunity to celebrate all the beautiful shades and spectrums of the LGBTQ+ rainbow. And in recent years, the popularity of queer stories, once relegated to the shadows or merely bleak tales of tragedy, now leap off the page in all sorts of glorious forms. Young adult will-they-won’t-they stories, tales of later-in-life sexual realization, and queer stories that celebrate the BIPOC communities all shine bright year-round. This Pride month, we gathered a number of stories that span genre, time period, and audience, and we tapped our friends at Goodreads to help us celebrate. This roundup includes books published in the last year and is based on how many times a book was rated, the total rating, and how many members added the book to their want-to-read shelf. Happy reading, and very happy Pride month.
