Trans Rights Readathon

The Trans Rights Readathon is an annual call to action to readers and book lovers in support of Trans Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31st.We are calling on the reader community to read and uplift books written by and/or featuring trans, genderqueer, nonbinary, gender-nonconforming, and 2Spirit authors and characters. This year’s Trans Rights Readathon will take place from Friday, March 22 to Friday, March 29, 2024. If you’d like to join us in 2024, please fill out the intro survey on the website

We at BYBS will be donating all proceeds from our own list to The LOFT, a Westchester based non-profit that does trans programming throughout the tri-state area. You can find our book list here

Dear Reader

Our mission is to create an inclusive future through reading. We’ve found the promotion and selection of queer inclusive literature lacking. Recently, more LGBTQIA+ books and authors have been published and we work to get these into your hands!

We strive to empower younger generations by providing board and picture books for even our youngest readers. Our goal is to have even the littlest of littles represented so they can live their authentic self as early as possible. 

Representation is important and by empowering the queer community through books we hope our readers know how important they are to the world and  the rainbow landscape we all encompass.

Happy Reading!
