2023 Pride Readathon

In honor of Pride Month, our friends at Bear Pond Books in Montpelier have spearheaded a state-wide fundraising effort for Outright Vermont's Camp Outright, a two session summer camp experience exclusively for kids who identify as LGBTQIA+. It works like this: You create a fundraising page HERE and then read as many books as you can by queer authors during the month of June. You get to set your goal; you pick the books. Follow us on Instagram @vtbookshop for direction if you'd like. We will be sharing our selections and linking to various other accounts for inspiration. We sure hope you will tag us if you post on social media, as we'd love to see what you are reading. And use the hashtag #VTPRIDEREADATHON to help others discover the amazing literature produced by the LGBTQIA+ community!

Check out Bear Pond's event page HERE for more information and their book list. Our list is below: it will grow and change over the course of the first days of June, so check back for more!

I read this slim novel years ago, but its warmth and my affection for its characters have stayed with me, even if all the plot details are forgotten. What I recall the most is the deep compassion I felt for the men at its center: men who, as boys, loved one another purely, but who were torn apart by the tsunami of societal expectations.
