An Essential LGBTQ Reading List

It’s that time of year again: NYC Pride Week, the biggest (and we like to think the best) Pride celebration in the world. So what better time to brush up on your LGBTQ-themed reading? After all of the festivities, you’re going to want to put your feet up anyway. Here, we’ve collected twenty-five books that are essential reading for anyone, anytime — but especially this week. Of course, there are hundreds of books out there that could have been perfectly at home on this list — so consider it merely a starting place, and adventure on.
