Once a year, approximately 1500 people get together in New York City to mingle, get to know each other, enrich, broaden, and even extend their lives through the amazing medium of LGBT books. The New York Rainbow Book Fair is America’s longest-running LGBT book fair, and the largest LGBT book event in the country. It has grown every year since its beginning in 2009. It brings together thoughtful, interesting people of all ages, from early teens to those in their 70s and 80s; from a spectrum of countries, ethnicities, gender identities, and viewpoints. It attracts readers and writers of course, but also publishers, editors, agents, and media attention – people who have never experienced queer culture, and others who have made it the focus of their lives. Rainbow Book Fair is open to the public, with book discounts and giveaways.
Please join us for The Ninth Annual Rainbow Book Fair, taking place April 29th at John Jay College, NYC.

This year, we are expanding into two large well-lit spaces: Hound Square Center, a bright large student activity area easily reachable by stairs or escalators, and the student cafeteria area we were in last year. A stunning outdoor garden area is nearby this space, perfect for coordinating other activities associated with the Fair. There will also be “break out” rooms for panels, readings, our famous Poetry Salon, and lots of space to mix and mingle.
