    So I've been looking around for good books to read, preferably good fiction books with gay protagonists and I came across the book Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin[​IMG]

    Fantastic novel so far about a man caught in a love triangle with a guy and his girlfriend/lover I guess? Lol anyway I would really like to read more like it! Does anyone have any books to suggest dealing with the sort of topics we discuss on the Boards or Cypher Avenue?

    Post suggestions or what books you're currently reading, fiction or nonfiction!

    my Philosophy of Science class were reading a whole bunch of great articles about realty and what is science and how we actually do it. Anyway long story short the many book were using is called Worldviews by Richard Dewitt i like it because Dewitt speaks very clearly about a topic people tend to make complicated.

    James Baldwin was a pioneer in the black/gay literature arena.

    This was my first real peek into what gay people deal with. I didn't have friends that I could talk to and this showed me that being gay is not just about sex. I was 17 at the time when I saw the book in the library and it changed my outlook forever.

    The Color Purple-Alice Walker
    Yes, before the movie their was the book. Along with tackling racial prejudice, women's rights, it also has a lesbian storyline between Celie and Shug Avery.
