Celebrate Pride Month!

We've cultivated a book list for all ages featuring important historical LGBTQ+ writers and contemporary creators alike. You'll find novels about LGBTQ+ characters, non-fiction about Queer history and important civil rights leaders, picture books about all kinds of families, and even fantastic board books about gender identity. But this list is definitely not exhaustive! It just shows some of our favorite fiction and non-fiction by or about LGBTQ+ folks, and we're proud to say these books are on our shelves year-round, not just for this one month of the year.
