The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

To mark Pride Month, Sheffield Libraries have put together an LGBTQ* writing challenge – a list of 120 books featuring writing by LGBTQ* authors and about LGBTQ* lives and stories.

The list is compiled by Dr Liz Chapman (@lgbtlibrarian). It features memoir, fiction, comic books, graphic novels, oral history, and poetry – by the likes of Audre Lorde, Armistead Maupin, Patricia Highsmith, Sarah Waters, Niven Govinden, Jackie Kay, Ali Smith, Janet Mock, and many, many more. All the titles are available to borrow from Sheffield Libraries.
