Pride Reads

Lauren Bell

To kick off Pride Month at Supposed Crimes, we’re going to highlight a handful of books by different authors featuring different aspects of pride—from diverse gender and sexuality representation, to coming out both early and late in life, to celebrating and embracing one’s identity, we’ve got it all at your favorite queer-owned publishing company!

The Turning Together series by Lara Zielinsky

New release Turning In, as well as Turning Point and Turn for Home, are all on sale for $2.99 or less this month! The books detail the relationship between two women as they realize a bit later in life that they are lesbians. Not only do we get a glimpse of the experience of “late in life” lesbians, but we see the struggles and eventual success of the merging of two separate families into one. A beautiful celebration of sapphic love, you can check the books out here.

Notes from Boston 1-4 by A.M. Leibowitz

This four-book series shares various tales of queer life in Boston. The series touches on numerous different topics, such as coming out, self love, and acceptance. The series also features a colorful cast of characters, as you get gay, bisexual, transgender, drag queen, and polyamorous representation. You can check out the Notes from Boston books, as well as Leibowitz’s other books, here.

Endless Days of Summer by Stacy O’Steen

A wonderful story of self discovery, O’Steen’s novel transports readers back to college to follow main character Penelope’s journey through her decision to go to college far from home, find community in the LGBTQIA+ club at school, and uncover aspects of her past she hadn’t known before. Endless Days of Summer features both asexual and wlw representation and can be purchased here.

The Practical Mage’s Guide to Magic & Mayhem by Dan Ackerman

A tale of mages, demons, and enchantments, Ackerman’s novel is the perfect read for anyone looking to escape the real world and dive into a fantastical one. In a world that turns its back on queer men and gender-nonconforming beings, the queer mage and the nonbinary demon find solidarity in their mutual struggle for tolerance. Check it out here.

Upstaged: An anthology of women who love women in performing arts

As a theatre artist myself, I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend Upstaged as a Pride Month read, especially with the Tony Awards coming up tonight. The book features 10 different stories written by as many authors about queer women in the performing arts, both on stage and behind the scenes. The stories vary from fluff to erotic, humor to serious, and feature sapphic stories of characters from all identities and ages. There’s something in this anthology for everyone, so be sure to check it out here.
