Reading the Rainbow: LGBTQ Books to Read this Summer

Summer is finally here which means getting lost in a book by the beach (naked)  is a must! 

Celebrating pride month goes beyond attending (digital) parades and hanging your flags… celebrating shows up in how you choose to educate yourself! Reading the words from LGBTQ authors and allies opens our minds to understanding our history, culture, how we are still being affected and what is being done to invoke positive change!

Whether you’re choosing to celebrate your Rainbow Summer socially distanced at the beach or enjoying the serenity of summer from your home keeping your brain active can be a positive way from going mad! 

Stay educated and enjoy colorfully celebrating with these LGBTQ summer must reads!!
