Be that as it may, more than showing us the acceptance and the value of appreciation, the label has been exceptionally consistent in making a protected space for underrepresented voices to prosper and share their stories, regardless of whether it's about discovering love in numerous forms and shapes or finding one's sexual awakening with fleeting moments of kilig.

Currently celebrating its 3rd year in the publishing industry, Pride Lit is releasing 5 one of a kind titles from its list of seasoned and regarded authors and contributors. From Alex Rosas' sexual orientation swap romance, "Gay's Anatomy" to Soju's goofy dream "Ang Asul Na Buntot Ni Aquano", the new books represent diverse genres that tackle interestingly strange encounters and inventive premises. Other titles that will be released for this month include John Jack G. Wigley's "Kadenang Bahaghari", Lush Ericson's "Agustin and Ariston's Version of the Universe", and Angelica Sorreda's "Over Time".

“Each book actually talks about different emotions, experiences and were written differently,” Pride Lit Brand Manager Aiko Clarizza Buduan-Salazar points out.
“The upcoming new titles will open readers’ minds on the fresh possibilities of storytelling.” True to its vision, Pride Lit steps up its game by ensuring LGBTQ+ characters and its allies could be prominent figures in pop culture narratives, and serve as an inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community whose vibrant lives are worth telling, and are now everyone’s stories.
“We plan to release more books and become a staple in the community,” Salazar said.
“Aside from providing feel-good stories and erotic stories too, we plan to become more reachable to our target market and community.”
