PRIDE - LGBTQ+ writing

We are proud to be queer 365 days of the year - we are queer run and owned, and we’re committed to LGBTQIA+ representation across all sections of the shop, from poetry to politics, memoirs to picture books.

We do have a large LGBTQ section bringing together books across genres and housing them alongside LGBTQ+ history and queer theory.

Proudly inclusive & intersectional, it is vibrant and global and it includes theory, biography, politics, testimony, essay and more. The authors in the section are as varied as Audre Lorde, Juno Roche, Alison Phipps, Mia Violet, Joseph Cassara, Rita Indiana, Carmen Maria Machado, Penny Pepper, Colm Toibin, Jack Halberstam, Alan Hollinghurst, Jeanette Winterson, and Virginia Woolf.

These books (listed alphabetically) are just a snapshot of those we have in the shop - if you can’t see what you’re after please do give us a shout by email, phone or drop in and we can check the shelves or order in for you!

At checkout you have the option of postage or free click & collect if you’re local to the bookshop.
