We’re happy to announce we will be at PrideWork’s annual conference for the 2nd year in a row!! We have two ways you can gift a book and support our young queer community. 

PrideWorks’s mission is to inform communities about the realities of growing up gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, and to inspire them to respect and support LGBTQ people and to advocate for positive change. Prideworks was organized to produce an annual conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) youth, their allies, and the adults in their lives. The conference serves students from more than 70 middle and high schools and 10 colleges and universities. 

If you’re interested in gifting a young person a book please review our YA in- house inventory below and gift one today!  Orders will be processed normally, add the book to your cart and proceed to check out. Once purchased the YA books will be added to our FREE box for queer youth who attend the PrideWork’s conference and together we can build a better world. Gifts from our in-house inventory should be purchased by March 10th 2024. See below for another way to gift books.

Check out our instagram to see your gifts in action!


Another way to gift books is to use our PRIDEWORKS REGISTRY. Please have purchases finished by February 28th if using the registry to allow 2 weeks for arrival.

Buy us a coffee for $2 or think about a monthly or yearly donation, no amount is too small! Your generous donation will support Be Yourself Bookshop, by allowing us to extend our support to the queer community. With your help, we will continue to provide public education, a wide array of empowering books, and transformative programs. Join us in our mission to create a more inclusive and understanding society. Remember, even the smallest act of kindness can spark a wildfire of change. Join us on this journey, and let’s create a world that radiates love.
