Books that celebrate love, in all its glorious forms.

2018 marks 40 years of Sydney’s Mardi Gras as a celebration of love, of inclusion, of diversity and of equality. And with the recent Yes vote prompting the legislation of equal marriage rights, this year’s party is destined to go off like no other. But we can never forget that both of these milestones are emblematic of long and painful struggles. And throughout history it’s been the place of artists and writers to elucidate these struggles to the broader public, in doing so breaking down boundaries, and ultimately changing the way people think about gender, about relationships and about love. Here is a collection of books that pay tribute to the champions, the advocates, the romances and heartbreaks along the road to LGBTQI acceptance.
