We are fortunate to be living in a golden age for LGBTQ literature, where any list you make is bound to have incredible queer voices. So being able to make a list made up entirely of those voices is such a treat—and miraculously, there were too many to include in just one list!

Below are some of our favorites from among the latest fiction releases including science fiction, mystery, romance, short stories, and literary fiction. If nonfiction is more your speed, explore these new releases which include memoirs, essays, social history, and more.

Summaries provided via NYPL’s catalog, which draws from multiple sources. Click through to each book’s title for more.
