21 Black LesBiQueer Authors & Novelists To Add Onto Your Book Collection

black lesbian authors

The G-List Society recognizes National Women’s History Month, an annual American celebration of women whose contributions to societies and industries left remarkable impacts.  Throughout the month, The G-List Society will dedicate a day to recognize lesbian, bisexual and queer (LesBiQueer) women who are/were pioneers, leaders and successors in fields of community, leadership, entertainment and art.

As an admirer of writers, especially the content creators who narrate the Black people’s experience, I kick off The G-List Society’s celebration of National Women’s History Month with a selected list of 21 Black LesBiQueer authors and novelists and partial lists of their works I recommend you readers to know and add onto your book collections.

Many of these gifted women filled in the voids of storytelling on the Black lesbian experience with real stories and colorful fantasies.  Their works have helped young Black women find their way into sexual and gender identification.

Some of these notable women have seen their literary works turn into films, documentaries and video shorts for mass consumption.  One of those authors has seen her published in dozens of languages around the world as the book’s film adaptation is regularly played on television 30 years beyond its original publication.  Another novelist on this list has seen the film adaptation of her book earn an Academy Award for its support actress.  Do you have a clue on which two novelists I am referring?

Check out my list of 21 accomplished Black lesbian, bisexual and queer women whose works are currently sold on Amazon.  I hope you support these women and the platform of diverse storytelling of the Black same-gender-loving woman experience and the platform of diversity for openly Black LesBiQueer women to be a creative force in the literary world.
