Queer-Owned Bookstores to Support

This directory is regularly updated to reflect new stores. Last update: 6/25/2021


In celebration of Pride Month, we’re highlighting bookstores with LGBTQIA+ owners based in the US, Canada, and online! Check each listing for the store’s website, as well as how to follow them on social media.

Looking for more? You can also browse LGBTQIA+ fiction, nonfiction, and own-voices playliststake a quiz to find an LGBTQIA+ authored audiobook, and use our Bookstore Finder to locate a store near you.
