27+ Daring Poems About Queer Love​: Loving Loud And Proud

There’s something special about reading poems about queer love. They often feel like a secret code, a way of communicating that only those who understand can appreciate. Whether you are LGBTQ or straight, these poems remind us that we’re not alone, that there are others out there who know what it’s like to be in love and to feel different. 

If you’re looking for some great poems about queer love, look no further! We’ve curated a list of some of our favourites for you to enjoy.

What Are The Best Poems About Queer Love?


The poems in this collection are by writers who have repeatedly been told they don’t belong. They explore the complexities of queer love and how it often feels to live outside society’s expectations for romantic relationships. We hope you find them inspiring, thought-provoking, heartbreaking, empowering or all three!

Remember that there is no one way to make a poem about queerness – these poets show us what can happen when we choose not to follow tradition.
