Ep 206: Celebrating LGBTQIA Romances Reads

On this episode, Heather and Jenni join Becky to celebrate Pride Month with some of our favorite LGBTQIA romances reads. We are here to share incredible love stories that reflect the diversity and beauty of the LGBTQIA community. From heartwarming tales to passionate romances, we believe these stories deserve to be celebrated not just this month, but all year round.  

So, join us as we highlight books that inspire, empower, and celebrate love in all its forms. Let’s dive into these amazing reads and celebrate pride all year! 

Things to note if you are celebrating Pride this year and featuring and reading Queer Romances 

  • You should read Queer all year not just in June.  
  • It is not up to us to out Authors. It is fine to want to feature queer authors awesome, but it is not up to us to determine if they are queer or not.   
  • Make sure when you are featuring Queer authors to make sure you are providing a diverse list Pride does not equal whiteness.  
  • A Bi romance can look like a hetero-norm relationship.
