Lesbrary Links: Black Lives Matter, Books Featuring Queer Joy, and Pansexual Lit

Lesbrary Links cover collage

I follow hundreds of queer book blogs to scout out the best sapphic book news and reviews! Many of them get posted on tumblr and twitter as I discover them, but my favourites get saved for these link compilations. Here are some of the posts I’ve found interesting in the last few weeks.

Zami by Audre Lorde   The House You Pass On the Way by Jacqueline Woodson   Here Comes The Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn   Full Disclosure by Camryn Garrett   Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole

  • I’m proud to see how many queer lit pages are using their platforms to advocate for Black Lives Matter–Pride was a riot against police violence, and it is imperative for LGBTQ people to stand together with Black Americans (and Black people around the world) fighting for their rights. Andi Marquette talked about this at Women and Words: Yeah…About that Whole Pride Thing…
  • One way you can support is with your wallet, and LGBTQ Reads posted Shop Queer Books from Black-Owned Bookstores to make it easy to support Black-owned bookstores while you’re building your Pride TBR.
  • Autostraddle has been celebrating the Year of Our (Audre) Lorde all 2020. Check out the latest addition: May’s Burst of Light.

Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo  You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson  Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron  The Black Veins by Ashia Monet  The Weight of the Stars by K Ancrum
