#PrideLibrary21: Introduction Post

Time for an exciting announcement!

As you probably know, June is Pride Month. For the past two years, my friends Hâf @ The Library Looter, Michelle @ Michelle Likes Things and I hosted a challenge with prompts for every day of the month. I’m so excited to announce that we’re back with another Pride challenge: #PrideLibrary21. We hope you’ll join us again, for as few or as many days as you want!

How to participate?

You can participate on Instagram by taking pictures that suit the following prompts and then posting them on the set days using #PrideLibrary21. We’re hosting a giveaway along with the Instagram challenge as well!

You can also participate on your blog! To do so, you can write a blog post to match the day’s themes. For instance, you could review a book that has said representation, or recommend some of your favourites! Let us know below if you’ll be participating!! If you share any blog posts based on the prompts, make sure to follow our blogs and link to our challenge announcement posts, as we’d love to read your posts!

Explaining the prompts

You can view all of the prompts below; I think most of them are self-explanatory or easy to Google. The basic premise of this challenge is of course to include books with LGBTQ+ rep and/or written by LGBTQ+ authors in your photos and/or blog posts! You’ll see we haven’t specified certain prompts being LGBTQ+ as well, but that’s because we think that should be obvious! We’d like to focus on intersectionality with some of the prompts, and of course it wouldn’t make much sense to post your books with a fat MC that isn’t queer or isn’t by a queer author, for instance. We’ve tried to come up with inclusive prompts, and encourage you to include as many diverse books by LGBTQ+ authors as possible.
