Corina #questionnaire #gay and lesbian
Sorry I can’t help but happy pride!?
@Lucy, DJ Jamison, Charlotte Reagan, Mia Archer, TB Markinson, @Miranda you really can’t go wrong with anything from any of these authors.
Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown
So good ???
Hard Love by Ellen Wittlinger has a lesbian character as the narrator’s love interest. There is also a short story called The Acuteness of Desire by Michael Lowenthal, but it’s quite sexual, so you have been warned lol I’m having trouble thinking of LGBT books though sadly.. ?
Never read any but would be interested
Spoiler Alert : The Hero dies at the End -Michael Ausiello and Apples and Regret and Wasted Time -Cornelia Grey and Borrowed Time : An AIDS Memoir Paul Monette
Don’t know if this qualifies..but I loved Sing You Home..by Jodi Picoult..very good book..
I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson dress Codes for Small Towns
Island Boys Don’t Cry by Aurora Gayle. One of the main characters is gay and lives in a small third world country where it isn’t cool to be gay. He is a teacher and A student accuses him of sexual molestation and the story takes several interesting twists and turns from there.

Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli ❤️?️?
Boy meets boy. It was the first lgbt book I read.
The Absolutist by John Boyne.
I like Every Day by David Levithan, and I consider it to be LGBTQIA+ because the main character doesn’t have a determined sex/gender, which makes their gender and sexuality fluid.
Anything @Kindle! Best I’ve read!
I just started reading There Goes Sunday School- it just released, and it’s really good so far
Janey Has Two Mommies.
Also- Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things- it’s a really good paranormal YA. One of the main couples is M-M, they are my favorite couple, and the strongest romance story in the book

Of Stars and Fire is the most recent LGBTQ book I’ve read and it features a F/F relationship…AND they’re princesses!!! ?

I’m reading The secrets of my Life by Caitlyn Jenner right now. It’s really interesting so far.
I read that too.. It honestly made me angry because I feel like she bashed her entire family and was extremely disrespectful. However, I also like the Kardashians, so maybe that’s why I was irritated as well. ?
@Keshia I just finished reading Kris Jenner’s book, and just read the first chapter of Caitlyn’s book so it’s going to be interesting to see the two different perspectives.
