Pride Month Literary Events

June 16, 2021

A rainbow made of neon lights mounted on a white wall with the following phrases written in black: love is a right, love wins, live and let love, support love, and love is love.

There are still many ways to connect with and show up for the literary LGBTQIA+ community this Pride Month! Queer writers, our world is made better by your presence. We celebrate you this month and every month!

We’ve gathered online readings, book clubs, YA events, lectures, and celebrations for you below. Check out the links to preregister, invite your friends, and grab your favorite Pride-themed snack or beverage!
