I'm looking for some more reads by queer/LGBTQ+ authors and need some help! Any #suggestions?

sprainedbrain Not sure what all you have read, but I have enjoyed Michelle Tea and David Levithan... I‘m sure I can think of others but those two come to mind. 😃 13mo
LogiKitty @sprainedbrain I haven't read any yet! Do you have any favorites by them? 13mo
sprainedbrain Why, yes! Black Wave by Michelle Tea (it‘s kind of weird, though) and Every Day by David Levithan. 13mo

zembla I enjoyed American Hippo by Sarah Gailey, and I've heard amazing things about J.Y. Yang's Tensorate series, starting with: 13mo
LogiKitty @christinamcc American hippo looks amazing! As does the black tides. I'm going to see if my library has them! 13mo

I was in need of some good-natured fluff and this has been getting great reviews. I‘m only a couple chapters in but it‘s pretty delightful and just what I‘d hoped for.

“[…] sometimes it seems like everyone knows who I am except me.”
— Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda .
I finally watched Love, Simon last week! It was really good but I wish they kept some things from the book like the t shirt thing. .do you feel like people see you as someone different than who you are ?

Straight expectations by Julie Bindel. Has much actually changed? How far have we actually come? Are Gay people trying to live a "straight" life just to be accepted by having kids and getting married. (I disagree) Who knows. Read this book. See what you think. Interesting read #straightexpectations #gaybooks #juliebindel #gay

This awesome book is on sale today for only $1.99! For Kindle and iBooks. I was tempted to buy it, but I already have the physical book, and it does smell delicious (I just opened it up and sniffed it)...so I guess I'll read this one on paper. It's a fab deal though! #gaybooks #queerbooks #LGBT

Joriebooks Thanks. I just bought it! 📚👍🏻 3y

Tonton This is so great! 3y
AliBG This book! My feelings about it are so complicated. I couldn't stop reading it but I didn't love it--just like Olive Kitteridge. I think in part the fact that the main character is essentially KEPT from being herself made it harder to KNOW her and therefore harder to like her. I'm all for unlikeable female protags, of course, but usually they're more polyphonic because they know themselves so well. That said, given Pence, the book is TIMELY. 3y
AliBG And moving. So damn moving. 3y

More awesome #queerbooks to celebrate #NationalComingOutDay! 🌈

I love how much awesome stuff there is out there. #WeNeedDiverseBooks has made a big push in the publishing world when it comes to showcasing more #diversebooks, and it shows. Not that *nothing* existed on this front before, but sometimes activism really goes a long way to make more of a good thing happen. I'm really glad it has. 💕


read_diverse_books I'm so lucky to be a reader at this time! 3y
BookishFeminist @read_diverse_books You are!! Even 10 years ago it would have been more difficult to find books on lgbtqia+ experiences, and there was nowhere near the diversity and positivity there is now, especially for different age groups. May it only get better! 🌈 3y

Shortstack I didn't know if I was your girl was LGBT!! Now I want to read it! 3y
BookishFeminist @Shortstack it is! It's trans #ownvoices, even down to the cover model! 3y
Shortstack @BookishFeminist ❤️💛💚💙💜 3y
RealLifeReading Thanks for posting this! I haven't heard of a lot of these. Am of to go see if I can find some! 3y
Broke_Girl_Reads I just started Bi and it's fantastic! Eisner's critical perspective is putting words to some of my experiences and challenging other parts of my worldview. It's totally scratching the gender studies itch I've had since I left school 3y
BookishFeminist @Broke_Girl_Reads That's one of the only ones here I hadn't read! I included it bc of it's awesome reviews and the difficulty in finding books about bisexuality- I'm surprised yet not surprised at all with them being more difficult to find than other lgbt books- bi erasure is a huge problem! I'm looking forward to seeing your review!! 3y
BookishFeminist @RealLifeReading Of course! I've got more collages where this came from too that I'll be posting later if you want more recs. :) I've been on a quest to read more LGBT books so I love sharing my finds with folks! 3y
jveezer I have to check out Bi! Sounds awesome. 3y
BookishFeminist @jveezer Yes!! I'm going to order it too. It sounds amazing! So many great reviews of it. 3y
whatthelog YES Bi Revolution is awesome!! You've got some great picks there 😍 3y
Yayforbooks I had to read Stone Butch Blues for a class in college, and I loved it so much I read it three more times that year. ☺️👍🏽 3y
BookishFeminist @whatthelog Thanks!! Love diverse books 💞💕 3y
