Lucy Powrie’s Read with Pride Recommendations

Author and BookTuber, Lucy Powrie shares her recommended PRIDE reads…

 

 

In my book, READ WITH PRIDE, the main character, Olivia, is trying to get as many people as possible to read with pride: to read books featuring characters who identify as LGBTQ+. As a teen, I desperately sought out books with characters who identified the same way as I did, so that I could make sense of the feelings and emotions I was experiencing.

 

As a character says in my book, “I #ReadWithPride because everyone deserves to see characters like themselves and to know that they’re not alone.”

 

Here are some of my favourite books that have made me feel proud to be me:
