The Censorship of LGBTQ+ Authors


If you’re concerned about the recent reinvigoration of book bans, especially those with LGBTQ+ themes, you’ll want to listen to our latest episode of The Author’s Corner.

With Pride Month just behind us, it’s crucial to reflect on the significant increase in attempts to remove or restrict LGBTQ+ books, particularly in school libraries. This alarming trend isn’t just a fight over books; it’s a fight over stories that need to be told.

In this Robin’s Riff, I will discuss the censorship of LGBTQ+ authors, share some of the recent data on book bans, and discuss why it is important that those of us who are in the publishing industry take a stand against these censorship attempts. 

Tune in now to understand why we must be vocal in our support for LGBTQ+ literature and resist censorship efforts.

  • The attempts to ban books with LGBTQ+ themes
  • The publishing industries role in this issue
  • The Importance of LGBTQ+ Voices and Freedom of Expression
