This list, assembled by Benoît Denizet-Lewis, is as atrociously presented as one would expect from a site run by incompetent Web developers/SEO whores.
The whole thing’s split over four pageview-inflating pages; even Readability can’t assemble them into one.
The markup is so atrocious it can’t even wrap around contributor photos properly.
There is an obfuscation of Amazon affiliate links that is one step away from cheating.
Some items are simply misspelled.
Even the slugs suck, but these people are too stupid to understand why slugs matter.
Because you, like me, want only the merged and deduped list and nothing else, here it is. And these are manifestly not the best “LGBT” books of all time, since, as we know, LGBT is a lie. No, I’m not going to look up links at LibraryThing.
