Gay books at barnes and noble
LGBT Fiction, Fiction, Books | Barnes & Noble®The retailer announced its second-year partnership with their release posted below. Now in its second year, the month-long campaign is aimed at bringing attention to the national problem of name-calling and bullying of all kinds. This campaign is just one more way we can help. We are thankful for their commitment to share the message of respect for difference to students, parents and educators across the country. The campaign was inspired by the young adult novel, The Misfits by James Howe, which tells the story of four best friends who, tired of the constant teasing in their middle school, decide to run for student government on a No Name-Calling platform. Stores will have No Name-Calling materials available for teachers and educators including book recommendations, tip sheets for organizing No Name-Calling events, lesson plans for elementary and middle school students, bracelets, classroom posters and buttons for educators to use in their classrooms.

LGBT Fiction: Books
The LGBT bookshelf, a place tucked away in the odd corner of a bookstore or library, might seem like a relic. It might seem, even, like a dangerous practice that makes it easier to hide queer and trans stories, one that could lead to censorship. But a place for these books has existed in the US in various forms over the last half a century—often as a space of refuge and connection for marginalized voices and the people who seek them. At the end of the s, the Supreme Court ruled that gay magazines were protected by free speech; 10 years later, the Stonewall riots , which set in motion the US gay rights movement, broke out. These stores responded to a growing need for community spaces for queer people that were at once liberating and edifying. AIDS forced gay life and culture into the mainstream. And businesses took notice.
