Recently, we blogged about Lilit Marcus’s project to read only books by women for a year. That year taught her a lot, but there was one hitch: at the end, she realized that “of the 40 books I read this year, only six were by women of color. Still fewer were by queer women.”
If you want to diversify your own reading list, here’s a great resource for you: a list of books published in 2013 about queer people of color.
Fiction, poetry, young-adult, comic books—it’s all there, from Susan Choi’s My Education to Brown Femme Survivor by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha.
