Got some extra space on your TBR list? Who are we kidding — there’s always room for more books! We’ve gathered a variety of fiction and non-fiction stories that are either written by or focus on the LGBTQ2S+ community. From the tragic to the celebrated, these titles leave a little bit of something for everyone and could provide a decent amount of laughter and tears along the way. It’s important to note that some of these recommended books could be triggering for some readers, as a few cover stories of trauma and mental health concerns. We encourage you to review the stories with care or leave room for breaks between chapters.
Now get that pen ready because we’re about to add more books to your growing list.
