Can Lit

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.
