Happy PRIDE everyone! Here are a few of our favorite books celebrating LGBTQIA+ folks with a focus on intersectionality. If we're missing any you love, let us know!

“Julián Is a Mermaid”, Jessica Love (Author). This classic is a "jubilant picture of self-love and a radiant celebration of individuality."

"My Rainbow",  Deshanna Neal (Author), Trinity Neal (Author), Art Twink (Illustrator). Based on a true story, "My Rainbow" is the tale of a mom who created a special gift to share her love for her trans daughter.

“ Bathe the Cat", Alice B. McGinty (Author), David Roberts (Illustrator). A sweet and playful story of preparing for a visit from grandma featuring a multiracial family and same-sex couple. 

“Stonewall: A Building, an Uprising, a Revolution", Rob Sanders (Author), Jamey Christoph (Illustrator). Told from the perspective of the Stonewall Inn itself, this powerful and timeless true story  will allow young readers to discover the rich and dynamic history of the Stonewall Inn and its role in the LGBTQ+ civil rights movement.

"Felix Yz", Lisa Bunker (Author). For the elementary set, this wild and imaginative tale features a variety of queer and gender fluid characters.

"Last Night at the Telegraph Club", Malinda Lo (Author). One for teen readers (or maybe yourself), a story about two young women who "risk everything to let their love see the light of day."

As always, we love to help support small and BIPOC-owned bookshops. Shopping our bookshop is a great way for you to join us in this mission,but we also know this may not be an accessible option for everyone. All of these books can be found at larger retailers as well.

Thanks for reading and all of your support.
