30 Books by 30 Queer Canadian Writers

Whether you’re building a New Year’s resolution reading list or hoping to renew your faith in #CanLit, we at Room are here to help.

This list of some of our most beloved fiction, poetry, and non-fiction books by queer Canadian writers, compiled by 14 members of the Room collective, is a great place to start.

If you’re a writer who identifies on the LGBTTQIA+ spectrum, please consider submitting to our queer issue. The deadline is January 31.

Shelfie #6: Cara Lang: Room Editors Show Off Their Reading Spaces

Getting a peek of an avid reader’s bookshelf is one of life’s simple pleasures. If you’ve ever shown up at a house party and gone straight to the host’s bookshelf, you know how satisfying it is to snoop through other readers’ libraries. The editors of Room love reading (obviously), and we’re giving you a glimpse of our shelves and sharing how we get the most out of our sacred reading time.
