Many release challenges are simply 'release books with XYZ in the title', but I wanted my first one to have some purpose to it beyond simply 'releasing more books', admirable though that is. I very much enjoyed taking part in the [livejournal.com profile] queerlit50 book challenge, and it provided me with inspiration for this goal.

Here's the plan: February is (in the UK, at least) LGBT History Month. I'm challenging BookCrossers to release books that:

- are written or illustrated by an LGBTQ person
AND/OR
- feature a positive representation of an LGBTQ person

I'll be giving two prizes: one to the person who releases the most books, and one to another participant, drawn at random. I've already got a little notebook that will make part of a prize, and I'll look out for other suitable bits and pieces through the month of January.

I'm looking forward to this one; I think it'll be a lot of fun.
