Welcome to June’s photo challenge! This month is all things Pride as it’s (not really globally, but a lot of people go all out this month) Pride Month.
Please remember this is a HP/JKR free zone. A hate free zone. And there is no supporting of toxic authors from me whatsoever (toxic can encompass a lot of things).
As always, interpret these prompts however you would like to! And don’t forget to use #LMSPride2021 so I can see your photos, too!
Day 01 – Pride Stack
Show off a stack of LGBTQ books!
Day 02 – Queer As Royals
There are actually a few books out in the world that have royal main characters, or love interests, show off some of them!
Day 03 – Characters You Want To Hug
So I may have had a specific person in mind when I wrote this one, but it applies to so many LGBTQ characters.
Day 04 – Not About Coming Out
Not all queer books need to be about coming out. Show off some that aren’t about coming out at all.
Day 05 – Leading Lesbians
Show off those lesbian main character books!
Day 06 – Middle Grade
I am forever in awe that queer middle grade books exist! If you have a favourite, show it off for this prompt.

Who doesn’t love fantastical gays? I surely do! What’s your favourite queer fantasy book? Show it off for this prompt!
Day 08 – Graphic Novels
There are so many incredible LGBTQ graphic novels – show off some if you have them!

Or show off what you think the first queer book a gay should read.
Day 26 – POC Main Characters
As a white person, I know I can do far better to read more queer books written by, and featuring people of colour. Show off some favourites if you have them.

Will definitely be participating in this. I’ll be creating infographics for each of these posts. This is the perfect way to shed light on so much queer literature out there that so many people don’t know of, some underrated and some already known. Thank you for creating this! Cannot wait 🙂
Thank you! I hope you enjoy this month as much as me 💜

By the way, what’s the difference between the challenges for Day 11 and 27? Both of them are about queer friendships, I assume?

They can be. But you can use platonic pals to show that you don’t need romance at all.
