The Book Nook Celebrates Pride Month (6/7)

Welcome to the Book Nook! The weekly thread for all book nerds on The Avocado.
This is the place to talk about books you’re currently reading, discuss genres, ask for recommendations, and post serious literary criticism.

Happy Pride Month everyone! To celebrate, please share your favorite LGBTQIA+ author(s) and your favorite book(s) of theirs. Bonus points for those who are lesser known and deserve the spotlight!

I would like this thread to continue to be a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone as much as possible. Please use your words insteadThanks, and happy posting!
