Rainbow Reads-WRAPUP

FINALLY RAINBOW READS EVENT IS AT AN END. This event was meant to take three weeks, possibly four maximum. But thanks to so many people providing such great content, so much great content (I got 9300 words of response!!) and my lack of organisation and time for bloggy things in among other things, this was a success!
I leave you with further reading suggested by other people, other internetty things that may take your interest, and a giant list of links of everyone who made this possible.

Other Things!
Malinda Lo’s Pride Month. She does all these infographics with numbers which I think are amazing because I don’t have the patience to sit and sort through all of that.
Caroline’s LGBT teen novel week, the thing that made me do this because I thought it had been some time since a blog celebration of queer fiction...then three happen at once :) Been quiet for a few months, but some excellent posts from various people.
Diversity in YA covers all sorts of diversity, and I really love this website.

Once again, huge thanks to everyone who made Rainbow Reads. 


  1. Nina, I wanted to thank you for always including me and my book in your posts! These have been enjoyable reads and I'm honored to have been a part of it. Thank you so much! :)

  2. This was such a massive event you undertook but so very necessary to bring more exposure to all these fantastic books and to show that despite the improvements, there's still a lot to work to do both in the real world and the fiction one to make sure we all have the same rights and representation!


Thanks for taking time to read this!
Comments are much loved.
