Happy Pride Month! We wanted to take a moment to raise the profiles of our many awe-inspiring and amazing authors and creators that have contributed books and decks in support of the LGBTQIA+ community. We hope you enjoy them and find them helpful.

This past weekend also marked 51 years since the Stonewall Uprising, the symbolic beginning of a movement as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals declared their presence and their rights. Unfortunately, change comes slowly, and the fight is not yet over.

Llewellyn stands with all those working to make lasting and meaningful changes. Our late President and Chairman, Carl Llewellyn Weschcke, believed that everyone should always try to become the best person they can become. We are hopeful the books we publish help to provide a path to this goal. Just as books are not created overnight, change does not happen overnight. It’s a process that requires effort, commitment, and unity. Llewellyn remains committed to our employees, our authors, and our readers, who are united in an effort to make a more inclusive world and to becoming the best person they can be.

(Psst! Are you a and author or artist that is part of the LGBTQIA+ community that wants to submit a manuscript or deck?!? Find full information on how to do so here.)

Igniting Intimacy Master the art of sex magic and forge radical new relationships with yourself, your beloveds, our planet, and life itself. This groundbreaking book invites you to develop intimacies that are as creative as they are consensual, as playful as they are profound, and as transformative as they are ecstatic. It offers fresh and accessible inspiration on topics such as self-love, conscious communication, and sacred sex, as well as practices and rituals for erotic shapeshifting, ecosexuality, ecstatic breath work, and so much more.

Rev. Rowan Bombadil (they/them pronouns) is a UK-based queer sex witch, psychosexual coach, and interfaith minister, dedicated to bridging the binaries between sex and spirit. Their work inspires individuals and groups of all genders, orientations, and bodies towards a more radical, creative, and intersectional vision of conscious intimacy. In their coaching, ceremonies, workshops, and events, Rowan seeks to facilitate personal and planetary transformation through pleasure.

Outside the Charmed Circle The intention of Outside the Charmed Circle is to help readers live as the truest expression of their gendered, sexual, spiritual self.

Gay Tarot The universal symbols of relationships—a man and a woman united as a couple and the eternal yin and yang—are substituted here by archetypes that define male homosexual union. A brilliant blend of modern figures and classic imagery, the Gay Tarot provides an excellent means of understanding and introspection.

Join author Tomás Prower as he gives step-by-step instructions for spells, magic, and prayers for practical results and long-term goals, including money, love, sex, healing, legal issues, protection, and more.
