LGBT Fiction: Pride 2012 Reads Chosen By The Seattle Public Library

LGBT fiction (Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transsexual) literature has a long and fascinating history, with some remarkable and engaging texts for readers of all gender and sexual identities.

As part of its "Seattle Picks" series, the Seattle Public Library came up with a comprehensive list of 20 essential reads, with some big names and key texts represented.

Though far from complete (what list ever is?), to celebrate National Pride Month, and this Sunday's Seattle Pride parade we're sharing their recommend reads, and asking: what did they miss?
