Recommended Books

This is a curated list of relevant books that have been found helpful by LGBTQIA+ Christians and their allies. They must be Christian, relevant to LGBTQIA+ people and issues, and written from an inclusive and affirming standpoint. (We may include some books from a neutral standpoint, but this will be indicated.)

You can browse the list, and can filter the books to find ones on a given topic, in a specific genre or from a particular standpoint. You can also use the Search bar at the top right of each page, which will search everything on the site.

If you would like to contribute to this list, please register on the site; after verifying that you’re not likely to spam us or add unsuitable books, we will enable you to add new books and to edit existing book records. New books and changes to existing book records are moderated, so there may be a delay before they appear – please be patient.

You can also suggest books that you think deserve to be included (check first that they’re not already listed). Anyone can do that; you don’t need to register first. Unfortunately we cannot respond to every suggestion, but we will consider them carefully and add those we think are suitable.

If you find any books here that you think should not be included, for example because they are anti-LGBTQIA+ or not specifically Christian, please let us know via the feedback form.
