LGBTQ+ Book List

Key players with money and ulterior motives are working to get representatives into school board meetings and onto school boards themselves in order to ban books from schools which concern marginalized groups and/or are written by an author who is a member of one of those groups. The group being targeted the most by these dangerous agitators is the LGBTQ+ community. Educators, teachers, librarians, and booksellers are under attack. Public education is under attack.

We have curated a list of books about the LGBTQ+ community, with characters who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, asexual, etc, that deal with the issues faced by members of these communities. These books are important ALL YEAR 'ROUND. And we want to make sure our customers, our friends, and people of all ages have access to as many of these books as possible. 

You can order these books from us online below or you can purchase these in store or by calling us at 951-787-7807. 

If any books you're looking for aren't listed below, you can search for them in the top right of our homepage and add them to your order from there.

Books for middle grade readers and picture book enthusiasts are below the young adult books, so keep scrolling!

Happy reading!
