Today was a historic day, in the best of ways.

And while marriage equality has ~finally~ been legalized in the U.S., it's still difficult to be yourself in certain parts of the country.


Much less coming out.

But maybe reading about characters like yourself comforted you — or quite literally saved you.


Because you didn't feel so alone.

Perhaps certain LGBTQ books provided a safe escape from the world around you when no one else seemed to understand.


Or maybe they even helped you come out to yourself.


So tell us — which LGBT book influenced you the most? And WHY? Your response could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post!

Happy Pride!
