My favourite LGBTQ+ authors

Day 4 of #PrideLibrary20.

Today’s post is dedicated to my favourite LGBTQ+ authors.

However, before reading this post please make sure you are doing everything possible to support Black Lives Matter by clicking on this link and reading about how you can sign petitions, donate money and educate yourself on the injustices Black people face today and every day and how we can help. It is not enough to not be racist, we must be anti-racist.

Below you will find my favourite LGBTQ+ authors and some of the books they have written, if you haven’t read any of their novels yet, I would thoroughly recommend rectifying that asap! Not all of the novels listed include LGBTQ+ rep.

  1. I loved Good Luck Girls and can’t wait for book two to come out!! I can’t believe I haven’t picked up Girls Of Paper And Fire yet. I’m also hoping to get Wonderland from the library when they reopen. Probably some of the authors other books too tbh as I definitely want to read a couple of them this year

  2. I’ve met Nic Stone in person before and she is honestly one of the sweetest people ever! I’m ashamed that I haven’t read any of her books yet, but my friend just lent me Dear Martin, so I’ll hopefully be reading that this month!

    And I’m so excited to read The Black Flamingo! The premise sounds amazing and I absolutely adore the cover! Plus, I love reading books that are told in verse!
