Our non-exhaustive, always-expanding lists of incredible Queer Books, including:
We're proud of the perspective we bring to queer history. That perspective, however, is and will always be deeply informed by the vast privileges we enjoy as white, cisgender men. If we’re able to articulate the queer community’s radical past in a meaningful way—and particularly if we’re able to convey the obligation each of us has to participate in the ceaseless struggle for collective liberation—it’s because both our vision and our voice have been shaped by the joy, trauma, labor, and brilliance of Black queer people.
We encourage you to seek out Black storytellers, Black leaders, Black activists, Black organizations, and Black lives. You can start by checking out this non-exhaustive list of local organizations to support and this non-exhaustive list of books by and/or about Black queer lives.
