LGBTQ+ Recommendations

Our country’s violent history against Black people is inexorably linked to its violent history against LGBTQ people. In this section, we have compiled an anti-racist reading list by, about, and for Black LGBTQ people. We ask that you join in the fight against white supremacy and help us honor the lives of Nina Pop, Tony McDade, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others by listening to and learning from Black queer voices.
