Book Lists


In BC, the first weekend in August is a long weekend, celebrating BC Day. It's also the same weekend as Pride, a celebration of the LGBTQ community. Some of these books are political, some of them are academic, some of them are by LGBTQ-identified authors, others just include LGBTQ characters.
