A list of books and songs for and about girls that love other girls
49 people in Orlando are gone, they are gone because they loved fiercely and only wanted to celebrate their love in a place where they could be themselves. This was a hate crime towards LGBT+ and that is something that should never be forgotten. Everyone in the LGBT+ community deserves to be who they are, no matter where they are, without fear and judgement.
In light of this I want share a little media about girls that love other girls. A few good books I loved, songs that are positive and upbeat, something that says LOVE ALWAYS WIN. There is evil in the world but we are strong. Love is bigger.
The six books featured in my edit are all books that I’ve read and loved, you can add them here:
There are a lot more books about girls in the LGBT+ community. These are just a few of those I have read and love. To find more LGBT+ books you can either search on Tumblr or Goodreads. One list I saw in the tag the other day is one made by user rykesmeadows and you can find the list here.
For songs about girls who love other girls then I have quite a long list, I’ll name them all below. However, I’ve created a playlist on Spotify which have all of these songs plus a few others that also fit the theme/vibe. The Spotify list can be found here.

Hey Ebony! Since you're in your 20's, I don't imagine you deal with this often (since most adults are more mature than teenagers), but at my school, I'm constantly getting criticized and looked down upon because of my love for Taylor. The kids don't understand how much she means to me and I hate how quick they are to judge. Whenever they single me out for liking Taylor, I feel so helpless for myself, but also for Taylor. Help?
in my experience even if you do try to explain it all, some people will never truly get it as what they see of taylor is all of the social media criticism of her, which is so often from those who don’t take the time to get to know her and her selfless nature!! people need to be more inclined to encourage what brings others joy, and it more so says something about their character if they would rather judge you.
my most recent judgement was from the lady at customs when I had a layover in LA, as she didn’t understand why i’d travel to the states to see taylor when she does come to australia, so I just said I was a big fan and let it be!! you simply have to love what you love and chase after what makes you happy, and if that includes taylor’s music then that’s great xx
It’s better to ignore something that makes you jealous then to pretend to be happy for the person you keep on pretending for. It’s a song and a dance that you should have given up on trying to learn, because the moves are all wrong. Stop pretending to be something you are not, stop creating lies to foreshadow the truth of your insecurities. Not everything is about you. Work hard for your own achievements; Give yourself something to believe in, but don't stand in the light of those who are just trying to succeed. Create your own light. Create your own opportunities.
So this is the reveal for the big project for next year’s Blizzcon, Judgement Uther! If you’ve seen a few of the recent updates, the large boots and hands I’m working on are for the ~7ft “Warcraft” scale I want to bring to this.
The fantastic concept here is by CelestialCrafts, at my request to make the Judgement Armor Uther from Heroes of the Storm more detailed and have more lighting affects.
This is two of my biggest dream Cosplays all wrapped up into one, and I can’t wait to live in the shop for months for it! 😅
