In August, Book Riot published a list of the Best Books Set In Every State, and I thought to myself, as I so often do, “What if we did a list like this, but for queer women?”
These women changed feminism forever with their scholarship. Let’s vow to never forget their names.
You should celebrate Black History Month by reading all of these books right now.
You voted and the results are in – the best 100 queer-lady fiction or memoir books of all time!
Kathy Acker, Audre Lorde, Alison Smith, The New Fuck You, Bett Williams, JD Glass, Dorothy Allison, Alison Bechdel, Michelle Tea and Marijane Meeker. There’s more out there than Tipping the Velvet and Written on the Body. Though if you haven’t read those already then you probs should asap.
