Hello readers and hello November!

Welcome back to another exciting list of upcoming LGBTQIA+ literature this fall. The air is only becoming crisper as we start to settle into the first cold spells of the year’s end. The days are getting shorter, and the nights, longer—perfect for cozy evenings spent curled up with a book and a warm drink at hand. 

Along with the chilly weather, this season brings a list of queer books just as fresh as an invigorating November breeze.

Also, exciting news! We are now including a brand-new Comics/Graphic Novels section in this list. So without further ado, here is November’s LGBTQIA+ Most Anticipated Literature.

Check out some of our featured picks for this month, including…

  • This book of poetry which honors the deep healing, love, and fight for liberation in both trans history and contemporary community.
  • This comic about a new Superman who finds his bisexual identity.
  • This young adult novel about a straight-A student who is searching for deeper meaning in her life and decides to stop trying so hard.
  • This heartwarming picture book about a transgender boy getting ready for his first day of school.
  • This expansive poetry collection covering both deeply personal subjects such as love and grief, as well as topics like climate change and space.
  • This young adult indigenous-futurist novel about two children attempting to meet in a world touched by catastrophe.
  • This historical fantasy romance novel about two men unraveling a magical mystery together in Edwardian England.
