Happy Pride month everyone!
What books are you reading this month? In case you didn’t know, June celebrates the 1969 Stonewall riots, where patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City staged an uprising to resist the harassment and persecution to which LGBT Americans were subjected.
Since then, celebrations have included multi-color parades, parties, workshops and events dedicated to the affirmation of the dignity and equal rights for everyone.
One of my favorite way to celebrate is, of course, the Pride Month Readings. During the month of June, we read books that feature queer characters, where all the identities are represented and stories shared to be known and loved.
I’m a big fan of Bookstagram, and that’s why I’ve selected a list of the most popular books read in Pride Month from my favorite Instagram profiles.
