Book Nook

Welcome to Family Equality’s Book Nook, home to all things LGBTQ+ family and literary! If you’ve been scouring the stacks for books that represent your family, or show diverse family constellations in a loving and respectful way, you know they aren’t always easy to find. That’s why the Book Nook is here – to bring together LGBTQ+ family-friendly books the whole family can enjoy, from the first picture book your child opens to young adult literature your tween can read on their own. Use the links on this page to select the age range you’re looking for.

Beyond our virtual bookshelves, the Book Nook created printable resources, making the lists easy to share with your school, local library, and community center. Enjoy!
