  • Gay Pride Flag
    Posted on: Wednesday, June 28, 2017

    On June 28, 1969, members of the LGBT community rioted after police raided a gay bar called Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Inn Riots proved to be a turning point in the LGBT civil rights movement. In celebration and memory of this momentous event in America, Pride Month now takes place in June. During this month, cities all over the nation host parades, marches, rallies, festivals, and other events to promote respect, equality, and pride for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. In honor of Pride month, and to help spread inclusiveness and representation I have created a list of some adult and YA science fiction and fantasy books that feature or focus on characters that are LGBTQ+.

    In February a lot of libraries do book displays called “Blind date with a book.” The displays feature library books wrapped in paper so that you can’t tell what the book is. Sometimes they will give you a few hints to the content in the book and sometimes they let you go into it completely blind. Obviously there is no (easy) way for me to do this in my blog. So I’ve figured out a different solution.

    It’s the end of the year so “Best of” lists are running rampant on the internet. I’m normally the type of person to buck the trend, but I think this one is actually useful. I figured this would be a good opportunity to highlight some of the best Fantasy books that have come out within the last year that some people might have missed out on.

    Here are a few of the best of the best:
