Representing Diversity in Literature

The literary world is home to a multitude of diverse authors, books and ideas thanks, in part, to independent publishers who represent the catalyst for change in the development of LGBTQ+ literature. In addition, new developments in how global distribution could be delivered have made a significant impact in availability of diverse literature.

The ‘sell first and then print later model’, using print-on-demand, lowered the barrier to entry for creatives to become publishers, and by doing so encouraged a wider spectrum of literature.

Today, Ingram sells and represents LGBTQ+ books from over 1,000 publishers, encompassing tens of thousands of individual titles in 34 languages and counting. This includes LGBTQ+ voices throughout Fiction, Young Adult Fiction to Biographies and Poetry. This not only helps represent the diversity of our readers, but it enriches the communities that we serve:
