These books are meant as the beginning of a list of book club titles. They were chosen to attend to a range of reading levels and interests, as well as genres and lengths. As much as possible, priority was given to #OwnVoices books, but attention to a diversity of characters was also a factor. Some of the titles will address issues of intersectionality within the LGBTQIA+ community. Many of these books were selected from the Stonewall Book Award list. There are many more books you might choose to include, but this list is a start. The books all have queer characters in them, but more importantly they are compelling stories with interesting characters.
