Stonewall Book Awards

The Stonewall Book Awards, sponsored by the American Library Association's Rainbow Round Table, are three literary awards that annually recognize "exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience" in English-language books published in the U.S.A.

First given in 1971, the awards are now separated into Literature, Nonfiction, and Children's & Young Adult. One book wins in each category each year, and a handful of others are honored as finalists.

The Open Library aims to have an entry for every edition of every book ever published. Many books have a scanned digital version, which you can borrow for an hour (or longer) if you make a free account. You can read or borrow a book if the bar underneath the cover says "Borrow" or "Read."

Want to donate a physical book to make it borrowable? Click for Book Drive info.

This collection only contains the Stonewall Award winners. For the full Open Library list of more than 400 finalists, click here.

If a book says it is "not in library" or "checked out," a copy might still be available! Click on the book's cover to see if you can borrow one of the other editions.
