- Let's start with a little history lesson.
- We Need Diverse Books shared what Pride means to a few YouTubers

- There are over 20 YA LGBTQ+ represented books coming out in the remainder of the year.
- Book Riot helped us find some new Podcasts with their list of favorites.
- We already knew that YA gets the LGBTQ+ community. Here, here, and here are two lists compiling favorites, and here's another featuring people of color! (Bonus for middle grade readers!)
What are your favorite LGBTQIA+ books? We need recs! These are just a few of our favorites that we highly recommend but there are so many more out there that are worthy of being on your bookshelf. ❤️💛💚💙💜🌈📚 ---------------------------- #epicreads #bookstagram #books #ya #yalit #illgiveyouthesun #simonvsthehomosapiensagenda #cutbothways #truelettersfromafictionallife #noneoftheabove #whatweleftbehind #frannieandtru #thefreatamericanwhatever #morehappythannot #themiseducationofcameronpost #aristotleanddantediscoverthesecretsoftheuniverse #carryon #symptomsofbeinghuman #lgbtqia #lgbtq #gayya #pride #readproud #pridemonth
- Spotify has us all nodding our heads and shaking our butts with over 30 Pride playlists in their #PressPlayForPride focus. My favorite is Loud & Proud but there is something for everyone. Like show tunes? Alan Cummings' Showstoppers has you covered. Got love on the brain? Forever Love takes you through 3 hours of love songs. Feeling the classics a bit more? There's totally a playlist for you.
- Did you know that there are trans writers across children, middle grade, and YA genres? You're welcome.
- One of our favorite book stores celebrated with this lovely display!

- Take a look at some of this year's Lamdba winners!
- Of course it's important to cultivate LGBTQ+ friendly library collections.
- Like comics? How about queer comics for scifi lovers? Here's a whole gathering of over 50 comic contributors showing their #queerselflove on Twitter.
You can also keep your pulse on the latest LGBTQ+ reads over at LGBTQReads.com or by following them on Twitter.I'm queer comic writer, failed Southern belle, and evil witch queen.
