It's the time of year when all the Pride flags fly. Time to celebrate with some awesomely awesome queer reads! Over on Twitter, be sure to check out #PrideReads for some ideas and to share your own favorite LGBTQIA+ books.
If you're looking for some great reads, you can check out some from our catalog. Here's a few to get you started:
Geonn Cannon has an entire body of fantastic books in multiple genres. You can read Appetizers, his latest, a collection of short works. or you can check out the books that sparked a web series, Riley Parra.
Be sure to have a peek at our other lesbian titles as well.
Our latest release is a contemporary MM Romance, The Power of Two by Leigh Vining. If you're more in the mood for something historical with a fantasy/paranormal twist, check out Stag and Hound by Geonn Cannon and What Everyone Deserves by Dan Ackerman.
More gay titles can be found here.
Surrogate and Surrogate: Hunted by Jeanne G'Fellers are must-reads if you're looking for bisexual-themed science fiction. A.M. Leibowitz's Notes From Boston series is romantic bisexual contemporary stories. And That Doesn't Belong Here by Dan Ackerman has a Jewish pansexual protagonist.
Here is a link to more books with bisexual+ main characters.
While we don't (yet!) have a large body of work about trans characters, we do have some and more to come in the future. A.M. Leibowitz's Faithfully Yours series has a genderqueer protagonist and several trans secondary characters. Keeping the Faith was a finalist in the 6th Annual Bisexual Book Awards.
As with trans characters, there aren't many here yet. But we're working on it, and on future inclusivity. All parts of the rainbow deserve representation! For now, be sure to read the excellent Endless Days of Summer by Stacy O'Steen.
