Happy Pride Eve! Of course, at the Lesbrary we celebrate sapphic books all year long, but Pride is the one time of year that queer books get a spotlight, and this year, we want to take advantage of that!
To celebrate, the Lesbrary will be posting an article every day in June! Some will be re-posts of content you might have missed, some will be updated versions of previous posts, and some will be brand new. This is in addition to the regular features like reviews, so some days will have two posts go up. So check back every day in June for posts like: sapphic mermaid books, F/F romances by Black authors, queer lit lost in the fire, and lots more.
I’m also hoping to use this time to promote the Lesbrary Patreon! By supporting the Lesbrary for $2 a month, you get entered in monthly giveaways of sapphic books–and I have a huge stack I can’t wait to get to a good home! You also get access to the Lesbrary Discord channel, where we have a little community of nerds who love queer books. $10 and up Patrons get a monthly lesbian pulp fiction postcard from me in the mail, as well as a guaranteed sapphic book every three months (on top of the giveaways). Or you can pledge $25 to become an Honorary Lesbrarian and get a sapphic book in the mail every month, on top of the other rewards.
With the rise in anti-LGBTQ book bans, now is the perfect time to celebrate Pride by stocking up on queer books and books by queer authors and recommending them to others, so get ready to see your TBR grow. And while you’re doing that, make sure to show up to your local school board and library board meetings to fight for the freedom to read. Here’s an anti-censorship tool kit that has more info on fighting book bans.
Happy Pride! And be sure to come back every day in June for more sapphic book recs!
