For Pride Month 2024, we’ve got a colorful array of books to encourage LGBTQ inclusion

By DAVID CRUMM
Editor of ReadTheSpirit magazine

For more than a decade, our Front Edge Publishing community of authors has been on the cutting edge of producing books that help communities understand and reconnect with LGBTQ folks—especially welcoming them into the thousands of congregations nationwide who are in the process of opening their doors.

We have reported in ReadTheSpirit weekly magazine—and have published books—about many aspects of this historic transition in American life. For example, in March, we reported on the deeply troubling rise of hate crimes against gay and transgender students—and we highlighted two particularly helpful books published by the Michigan State University School of Journalism Bias Busters project.

In May, we reported on the more than 20,000 United Methodist congregations now opening their doors nationwide after a global gathering of that denomination’s leaders voted overwhelmingly to become more inclusive.

NOW—For Pride Month, this June, Front Edge Publishing’s Susan Stitt produced the following video to showcase our array of helpful books.
