"It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences." – Audre Lord


Today marks the beginning of #Pride month, a time celebrated each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan which was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Throughout the month, Bookclubs will be celebrating LGBTQ+ writers, readers, bloggers, and bookclubbers around the world recognizing the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals have had on literature, art, culture, and history. 


Read on for LGBTQ+ reading recommendations, resources, and ideas for incorporating Pride month into your June book club.
