LGBTQ Books Removed from Target.com
On March 25th, word started to spread on Twitter that many LGBTQ books were missing from Target’s website. Many of the missing titles had previously been available for preorder. Brian D. Kennedy, whose book A Little Bit Country was affected, expressed his concern in a tweet: “Not to be alarmist, but my book, a gay rom-com, was up for pre-order at @Target earlier this year And now it’s gone? Along with some other queer debut books?? While the straight titles from my publisher remain?! I really hope there’s a logical explanation (besides homophobia).” In an email statement to Publishers Weekly, Target claimed the issue was related to a website change. As of this morning, 94 of the 118 books that Moreland noted had been removed have now reappeared on the website.
