Many of us have been avid readers since we were young, when we sought and found comfort from the problems of the outside world in the pages of books. The following are new books by LGBTQ writers out just in time for Pride month and summer reading.

What a great year 2016 has been for books. It’s been especially good when it comes to books by and about queer people. That’s why these outstanding titles in poetry, fiction, non-fiction and even picture books should make holiday shopping a breeze.
