Books That Celebrate LGBTQIA Pride​

Katrina's Blog

 

It's Pride month and one way I'm celebrating is to share these lists of books about the LGBTQIA community or featuring LGBTQIA characters.

 

First, let me personally recommend three titles.

 

The first is Luna by Julie Anne Peters. It is a moving, poignant narrative about a transgender teen's struggle for self-identity. It is best suited for young adult readers and I highly recommend it.

 

The second is Drama, a graphic novel by Raina Telgemeier. A middle schooler in her school's drama production crew has a crush. And her crush has a crush. It is light and fun and lovers of graphic novels will enjoy it.

 

The third is the comic book series Lumberjanes. You've heard me mention this before. It is goofy yet smart, empowering, and it features a diverse cast of characters.

 

This list from Huffpost centers mainly on picture books and includes titles related to gender non-conforming kids, queer families, and icons in the gay community.

 

This list of YA titles includes titles from authors like John Green, David Levithan, and Jacqueline Woodson.​
