Hello again everybody! It’s Joe Pascullo here, guest writing once more for my friend Tabrizia’s blog. We’ve just wrapped up Pride Month here in June. But to keep the celebration going, Tabrizia asked me to pen a blog with some LGBTQ titles for all you readers to check out. I was happy to oblige! Fandoms and conventions (remember when we used to attend those!?) for the yaoi (boys’ love) and yuri (girls’ love) genres have exploded in popularity, with many manga fans simply choosing to read only titles within those classifications. Need some recommendations? Try one (or more) of these on for size!

We need LGBTQ reads now more than ever, at a time where we need to hear diverse stories and have the chance to step in other people’s shoes. So take up the chance and read across the rainbow (even if it’s past June 30) and discover the colorful and vibrant stories the following amazing authors have to tell!Continue reading “Read with PRIDE: LGBTQ Reads for 2020”
