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.

Hope u crazy kids had fun

What other books are about LBGTQIA+ teens who are also POC's and are crafted both realistically and beautifully????

This weekend I read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz, and today I read If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan, and I just loved them so much and I can’t fully explain how much my heart FEELS for these characters and their narratives and I just really need to read more books like these. I’m just starting to read books about LGBTQIA+ characters, and I want to keep reading about them, but when I look through the bestsellers in this *genre* I see that the majority of them are about white individuals– and I am tired of seeing them dominate my literature.

But I don’t know what other books to read– I’m completely new to this!

The other books that I do plan to pick up soon are More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera, Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Tally, and Tell Me Again How A Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan. And while I’m super excited for these– they won’t be enough!

~Note, I’m not completely going to cut out books with white protagonists. I would just like to enter this genre of books with people who are different in more ways than one and who I, as a potentially bisexual Latina, can relate to and empathize with on many levels.

Thank you for all of your help!!!!!!

I need you right now, but you won’t help, I need you… You said you wanted to help but you treated me like shit… You said your always here to talk but you told me to go, you said your always by my side but where the fuck are you now… I’m sick of being just another face in the crowd

Sail on after me, Love
Will you sail on after me?
Will you fight the waves of oceans,
Will you still believe?
