Microcosm Publishing - Celebrating LGBTQ+ Diversity with New Books

Microcosm Publishing - Celebrating LGBTQ+ Diversity with New Books

As the LGBTQ+ community gears up for Pride Month, Microcosm Publishing is proud to offer three new books that celebrate queer diversity and empowerment. From a joyful coloring book of queer affirmations to an educational and entertaining look at queer animals and plants in nature, to a collection of erotic short stories that explores the complexities of transfem identity and desire, there's something for everyone in this trio of treats.

The Queer Affirmations Coloring Book by Joe Carlough (author) and Ally Shwed (illustrator) takes on heteronormative platitudes with a splash of color and a whole lot of humor. Featuring colorable scenarios of all sorts of queer people bonding with each other, expressing their emotions, and learning to love themselves a little more every day, this book is the perfect antidote to the narrow stereotypes that can so often limit queer representation.

Queer Animals & Plants Coloring Book by Kes Otter Lieffe (author) and Anja Van Geert (illustrator) explores the fascinating and diverse world of queer animals and plants in nature. From lesbian gulls and intersex grizzly bears to binary-smashing lichens and sex-changing willow trees, this book celebrates the vibrant queerness that exists far beyond the human realm. Educational and entertaining, it's perfect for all ages and a great way to challenge society's cis-het norms.

A Tight Squeeze: Smutty Trans and Queer Stories (Queering Consent) by laura q is a collection of twelve t4t erotic short stories that explore the complexities of transfem identity, desire, and erotic experiences. From after-hours surprises in a Swedish furniture store to the hustle of navigating life and love in post-condopocalypse Toronto, these stories serve up a tender erotic banquet with a side of consensual violence and always finished with a sweet course of connection and community.

Microcosm Publishing is known for their commitment to empowering marginalized voices and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom. With these three new books, they continue to push the boundaries of representation and celebrate the rich diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
