Happy Canada Day! Joyeuse fête du Canada!

To celebrate, we’d like to share with you a brief list of queer Canadian lit, as recommended by folks on our twitter! I’ve tried to separate these by province/territory whenever possible. For multi-book series, I’ve just listed the first book. One note:

If I’ve made a mistake with regards to orientation/gender identity in the book, genre, or location, please do not hesitate to correct me. I’m basing everything on Goodreads and user tags, which may not be accurate.

One more note: Casey the Canadian Librarian has an incredible list of Canadian Queer Women’s Classics, which I highly recommend you check out.

Now go curl up with a nice cup of Timmies and have a lovely Canada Day! (And if you have other recommendations, toss ’em in the comments and we’ll add them to the list. If possible, please include where in Canada the book is set!)
