The Ultimate LGBTQIA+ Pride Book List | Penguin Random House
What can even be said about this year? Here's something at least: the books, thankfully, were lit. As we wrote about in our list of over LGBTQ authors recommending the queer book that changed their lives , this June brought with it the important reminder of how the brick-throwing revolts that erupted fifty years ago in front of the Stonewall Inn in New York , the ones we champion as birthing a movement, the ones we commemorate every year with a parade, were largely led by people of color—particularly trans women of color—protesting police violence. The following 42 LGBTQ books leave room for the revolutions, the revelations, the revelry, and the rapture.
Coming of age and coming out are two painstakingly difficult processes for anyone out there. Worse yet, they might occur at the same time, leaving an even longer wake of confusion behind them. When self-doubt comes in, some good representation can help. Coming-of-age novels, however, can mean a lot to older readers as well. Reading of the angst and joys of entering adulthood as an LGBTI person is, in fact, an even more emotional journey in hindsight.
