QUEER SUMMER READS

NAOMI REA SELECTS THE BEST IN NEW AND CLASSIC LEZ AND BI LITERATURE FOR YOUR BEACHREADING PLEASURE

Choosing what to read over summer isn’t always easy: It can be hard to wade through the swathes of trashy e-books – as much as we love them sometimes – for some genuinely good lez/bi reads. Take a leaf from our book and select one from each of the sections below and we promise your summer reading list will lift you, heart and soul.

YOUNG ADUT

For the adolescent and baby gays; YA makes great light reading for grown ups, too!

JULIET TAKES A BREATH

Gabby Rivera (Riverdale Ave Books, January 2016)

Gabby Rivera is a queer feminist Latina from NYC. Her debut novel is a queer coming-of-age story that follows Juliet, a Puerto Rican lesbian from the Bronx, as she comes out to her parents and travels across the country to meet her idol: a white feminist theorist in Portland, Oregon. Over the course of her summer, Juliet confronts her own naïveté, strengthens her feminist views and learns first-hand about the important role of queer community. Juliet is a feisty character who shatters the established Latina identity trope that Latina women have to be straight, femme, maternal figures. A great read for young queer readers struggling to understand themselves and a great reminder for the rest of us about how complex the world can be when you’re just starting out.
