Pride Lit, the first Filipino pop literature imprint focused on championing LGBTQ+

“Each book actually talks about different emotions, experiences and were written differently. The upcoming new titles will open readers’ minds on the fresh possibilities of storytelling. We plan to release more books and become a staple in the community. Aside from providing feel-good stories and erotic stories too, we plan to become more reachable to our target market and community.” ~Aiko Clarizza Buduan-Salazar, Pride Lit Brand Manager

Where love is love and gender does not matter!

Now celebrating its third year in the publishing industry, Pride Lit is taking a huge leap by releasing five unique titles from its roster of seasoned and respected writers and contributors. As part of its advocacy to recognize the impact and massive contribution of our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters all over the world and give them a platform to share their colorful stories of love, romance, struggle, triumph, and determination, the initiative also coincides with the official launch of the publishing arm under Precious Hearts Romances Corporation, along with the maiden release of its four (4) brand new titles under its imprint.

As the first Filipino pop literature imprint focused on championing LGBTQ+ narratives, Pride Lit stands proud as a great source of entertainment and inspiration to readers of all kinds. During the press conference that took place last June 28, 2019, at The Roxy Events Venue, Ground Floor, Alfredo's Restaurant Bldg. Tomas Morato Ave., Quezon City. Pride Lit's three-year experience in the publishing industry and the challenges that Pride Lit face in building a brand that fought hard for the inclusions of LGBTQ+ protagonists in pop culture narratives.

"Ang mga kuwentong 'to ay narito para i-normalize ang pagiging bakla. Hindi ito protesta, pakikibaka, o kung ano man—bakla ka, and walang problema doon."

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.

  • Alex Rosas’ gender-swap romance Gay’s Anatomy to Soju’s campy fantasy Ang Asul Na Buntot Ni Aquano.
  • The new releases represent diverse genres that speak of uniquely queer experiences and imaginative premises.
  • John Jack G. Wigley’s ensemble drama Kadenang Bahaghari
  • Lush Ericson’s instant pleaser Agustin and Ariston’s Version of the Universe.
  • Angelica Sorreda’s romantic offering Over Time.

But more than teaching us the value of appreciation and acceptance, the brand has been very consistent in creating a safe space for underrepresented voices to flourish and share their stories, whether it’s about finding love in many forms and shapes or discovering one’s sexual awakening with fleeting moments of kilig.
