#PrideLibrary19 Day 9: Book Rainbow

For my book rainbow I wanted to travel back in time to the original 8 stripe flag and add back the pink stripe (for sex) and include the turquoise stripe (for art/magic) as well as the indigo one. In addition, I wanted to include a brown stripe and a black stripe, like the new Philadelphia pride flag, to recognize folks of color in LGBTQIAP+ communities. So my book rainbow has ten colors!

I pulled these off my shelves, regardless of whether I have read them. They are all queer, trans and/non-binary, and a range of genres and identities. A bunch of them are older queer and trans classics, but there are some newer books as well. I mostly read ebooks these days (and audiobooks) so if I own it in print, it’s likely because I’ve had it for a while, it’s an ARC, a gift or from a giveaway, or it’s not available in ebook. This is arranged by the color on the spine; the covers are sometimes a different color altogether. They are pictured on my rather messy desk.
